awning repair ?// refer

Hello again, have been reading some posts talking about to Eternabond tape and was wondering if anyone has used it for minor awning repair? need something on the edges closest to the coach when its extended its starting to tear a little.

Also any thoughts on why a norcold refer does not work on propane? when on electric it does work

Thanks much, Ray.

I have never heard of anyone using Eternabond tape on an awning before but it might work. The stuff is very sticky and could act as a weather shield like a metal wrapper does. The trick would be to not get it on the awning rail as you would have to cut the edge in order to get the fabric off if you had to replace it. You might want to consider taking the fabric off and having an upholstery shop resew the bead back in on the good part of the fabric if it is not deteriorated too bad.
The first thing I would suggest on the refrigerator would be to clean the burner if you are getting an attempted spark from the controller or liter module. Remember that you may have air in the lines and it may take many attempts to purge it and get fuel to the burner. Please give us more info on the exact observations of gas mode. We might be able to better help you with this.

I used awning tape on the front and rear edges of my bedroom pullout awning. It stopped the fraying and cut down the "farting" noise of the wind. I carefully cut a piece to length - awning out- and cleaned the surface of the awning with alcohol, then placed 1/2 on the top and folded the other 1/2 over and under the awning. Thus reinforcing the leading edges. It worked like a charm and has been used for 2 years without any more problems.
