Awning Safety

Sure, the window awnings are the lesser concern, if installed, but their failure can wreak all kinds of havoc.

I grabbed my iPad and shot a little clip for folks who have Bruster awnings, now that I've seen my biggest one fail two different ways, in the course of our first six months' ownership...

YouTube video is Awning Preflight Inspection Items.

A reason for carrying Loctite Threadlocker in you tool box. http://www.henkelna.com/threadlockin...N_Threadlocker
Sounds like manufacture should have safety recall to correct the problem.

I exercised my awnings as part of pre-trip checks last night and my living room windows awning fell off the coach.

The problem is, short-capstan awnings don't test those cheap cradles at the non-motor end; a long awning tears them apart with about 60 pounds of force during operation.

Does anyone have a Bruster parts supplier?
