First of all
Howdy and Welcome to iRV2.
When we got our pop-up They told us we probably wouldn't use the awning to much because of problems with the wind. We set up next to a Class A our first trip and I started setting the awning up like I was told and the man next to us watched and when I was all done he came over and asked if he could make a few suggestions. I said sure and he proceeded to explaine what I did wrong.....
1. Get rid of the plastic anchors and get the good metal pins, they look like long nails with green collars.
2. Always tie the cords out to the sides straight so you don't have any pulling or pushing on the top. the poles will hold it out.
2 Get 2 rachet tie downs and put a stake at the bottom of each of the end poles and tie them straight down. We did this for years and then switched to the spring loaded tie down strap for the big boys, We never had a problem.
Our awning was up in some strong winds, if I thought it was going to be to much I took it down.
We now have a toy Hauler and with it have a awning over the tail gate and we are looking at the screen room for it. The same thing will apply, stake it down if it starts to get to windy take it down .. We like the shade and the bug free sitting out. just be aware of the weather.
Have fun and I am sure you will get more answers.
