2012 FR Forester 3011 Awning in Slight Wind

I've noticed lately that my awning starts to fold up a bit in the slightest of wind, even if the tension thumb screws are tight. Is this normal? I never noticed this before. Mine is the electric self-actuating without the manual poles

It may be that one or both gas cylinders are getting weak and need to be replaced.
