WHile driving across South Dakota we were hit by a strong side wind, this caused the awning to unfurl, the aluminum covered remained in place as the awning flapped around the MH destroying both arms.
Our awning is a Carefree of Colorado, power awning.
The problem with Carefree is the plastic end caps stripping out and not being able to prevent the awning rod from moving.
See this thread for the fix for Carefree of COlorado awnings.
