Unfurling slide topper

The winds are howling to 60 mph in New Mexico. I timed a 200 mile drive yesterday to leave at 5:30 am and arrive in Santa Fe by 10:30 when the winds were about 20 mph with 30-35 gusts. The drive was great but some of the gusts unfurled my 17' slide topper. Thought we lost it for sure. Gladly it only sounded like we were broad sided by a truck. No damage was done. Is there a way to lock down these slide toppers without metal covers and for that matter awnings with metal covers?

contact northwestrvsupply.com
ask them about the wind deflectors for omega awnings.
they are aluminum 90 degree angles about 4 inches on each side.
they attach to the top of the slide just under the awning roller.
the idea is to keep the wind from getting up under the awning.
I have them on my HR and have had no blow-outs to date.

Thanks Bob. I called both of their stores and they are going to look into it. They sounded confused.

That link didn't work for me. Would it work on slide toppers?

Good idea. I can't seem to get a large blowup of that item or a description. What do you have to do to engage it or is it automatic and does this look like I already have it in this photo?
