Hi Gang! 06 Mountaineer w/ 3 slides, the awning doesn't cover the entire entry door. It allows rain to fall onto left side of steps,doorway and you get wet walking in /out.
Is there any aftermarket product I can install over the gap between the arm and fabric?
It can be perm or temp solution, I don't care if I have to install it and take it down each time I extend the awning. I'm thinking draping the old blue tarp over it would work great but look very bad! Any ideas? Thanks!

Maybe a piece of foam insulation (blue stuff) cut to fit. You could stick it above the arm and slide it under the awning and hold it in place with one of those "de-flappers" acting as a clamp. Whatever you use I would try to make it as light as possible.

Thanks Dmurdock..... That got my brain thinking in a whole different direction... I like the foam idea, rigid yet light.
I will think hard about it this weekend in between beers!
