At the recent iRV2 rally, some awning Rollumups were given away as prizes by RVUpgrades and I heard some folks also see them on our motorhome and comment about them. I thought I'd post some pictures so others could see how they work
The Rollumup awning light holders are Velcro strips with an awning tube tab built into one end. They are used by inserting them into the awning tube channel and then using the Velcro strip to fasten the awning lights to the awning tube.
I always used to hang my patio awning lights by the little plastic slide in tabs and S hooks into the awning when we camped. The tabs need to be removed each time I rolled up the awning, and I was forever dropping and losing the tabs or the S-hooks. I also didn't care for the way that my rope lights were held right up against the awning roller tube the light from the tube lights was blocked from going out into my campsite.
When I first saw the new awning light holders I liked them as they are very thin, and do not have an eyelet in them which allows them to be rolled right up in the awning for storage. Since the light holders do not use S-hooks, there is nothing to remove and get lost when hanging lights. The tabs are also around 10 inches long and can be used to hang the lights a distance below the awning tube so they show beneath the awning flap. Since the tabs are Velcro, they also are useful for hanging signs or decorations beneath the awning. We started hanging our sign with out name on it from the awning using the straps.
Neat little accessory. I give it a thumbs up
