Our trailer is stored at home under a metal shelter. Problem is the
trailer is #3 since I bought the shelter and this trailer is slightly longer
than the shelter
Rain can blow in on either end of the trailer.
I put up my awning DRY 1st of May.
When we opened it at Tybee Island last week it was wet almost from
end to end and well over half way up the middle.
It was badly mildewed and stinky!!
I've cleaned it with bleach and it's now rinsed and drying in the sun at
Question: Is there any way to keep the water from wicking or otherwise
getting inside the rolled up awning?
All those grooves in the awning drum are perfect ways for water to
migrate inside a rolled up awning.
I'm thinking of trying to put bags over
the ends but really I'm afraid that will just leave another place for water
to run under and cause more problems than help.
