To those of you who have had awnings unroll on the Road.....
What brand of awning is the most prone to unrolling? Ours is a "Carefree of Colorado". Has anyone ever had this brand unroll?

I have small awning flapper clips that have velcro straps and when in transit I use them to strap the arms together. Strapping above the existing arm clip keep it from shifting down. Multitasking with items keep life simple.

Our A & E 9000 has come unfurled on us three times. First time in Utah with 40 mph winds and no ladder. What a treat . The last time in Indiana in the winter time. We froze our hands getting it back in (twice). We had the straps up high on the arms and pins through the arms, they didn't keep the awning in!

I agree with Bounder4rfun, the Awning Saver works. We have used it for 6 months and not one problem. We increased our tension on the roller too, but I won't quite using the Awning Saver!
