Installed maxxair 2 vent cover over bathroom vent. It took about 30 mins to install and made a huge difference on the amount of light coming into the bathroom.

Looks like a power awning. Excuse the, probably silly, question; but why do you need support poles and tie downs for a power awning ?

I don't have first hand experience, but from what I've read- power awning arms aren't stout enough to withstand much wind at all. By supporting the arms and tying it down, I'm able to have my awning deployed up to a considerable amount of wind (I've had it out in 30-35mph winds). I was uncomfortable after 25mph, but I had missed my chance to bring it in safely at that point.

It lets me deploy my awning and essentially forget it/leave it out until we break camp and move to the next location.

The awning poles and brackets for mounting them were made by forum member, OldCoot.

Took the Mh ( 3051s) out for good road test after having the front end alignment done, NIGHT AND DAY DIFFERENCE!!!! If any one hasn't had theirs done yet, get it done ASAP!! Run 65 psi in air bags and 75 psi in front tires/ 80 psi in rear able to drive one handed in cross wind and no movement when passed by large trucks.

Leaves falling. Blew into forest. Grass too burnt to cut. That is summer! Close down the park model in early October

As ependydad said, wind is a power awnings worst enemy. The gas pistons are there to absorb some wind buffeting & allow water to "dump" off during heavy rains. But, unless the awning system is equipped with wind sensors which will automatically retract it in say (25 - 30 mph?) winds, expensive damage can result. I have seen awnings get tossed up on the roof (bending the arms), torn, and even pulled from the track at the top. Most of the time, this damaged happened when the owners were away and a storm came up.

We always check the weather for the day or just roll it up if we leave for any length of time or distance. We came close to loosing one once and learned from that experience.

Shed some weight- modified a desk to take off 1/2 of it, picked through some unused stuff, and keep telling myself that I'm going to tackle the basement next...

Ironically, I have tools with me that I've haven't used and at least 1 thing that I wished I had brought.
