If the wind is blowing more than about 5 to 10 MPH - enough to make you ask the question - then roll up the awning instead of attempting to tie it down.
If you plan to be gone more than an hour or so, and the wind might get up to over 10 MPH while you're gone, then roll up the awning in before you leave.
An awning is a like a huge unbrella, and if a stiff breeze gets under it, it can easily go bye bye. A little sunshine on the camper door is less irritating that a big awning that goes bye bye in the wind.
