Slide awning and ice lesson learned
We were in Pensacola a couple of weeks ago when the winter storm hit. We were camping at Avalon Landing (exit 22 on I-10, nice little campground close to Pensacola).
We had ice and snow, temps down to 22 degrees. Cold for Florida. I-10 closed for a day and a half.
Anyway, we were held up and leaving early in the morning after I-10 opened. As DW retracted the super slide there was a loud crash. You know where this is going. A big chunk of ice was on the awning and fell to the ground.
When we got home we found out the awning and rails had been damaged by the ice while retracting the slide.
Next time, if we ever camp in those conditions again, I will make sure all ice is removed from the slide awning... New awning and frame.. $$$
