Awning question.

I have some of the little tabs that go in the pull strap channel, the ones to hang lights from. Can you leave them in when you roll up the awning?

I have 3 different types and two of them I wouldn't leave in , the third type has a small rubber tab that hangs out ( 1/2" square ) and the lights clip on to the tab with a small clothes pin type clip. The tabs leave a mark that fades in the sun.

I leave them in. The type I use are all rubber and have holes for metal S holders. I take the metal holders out.

It's funny.....here in Oklahoma almost no one uses their awning because of the wind. I try and anchor down at least one side if possible but don't let a little blowing around bother me. The awning is still going to last me 5 to 10 years (or more) and I'll get the enjoyment out of using it. It also helps keep the RV cool in the 100 degree days here.

I leave mine in. Mine are nothing more than a Velcro loop with the tab that goes in that channel. We bought them at an RV store. Because they are just a Velcro strap they really don't cause any issue at all.
If you have friends who make you laugh, spend lots of time with them.
