Reinforcing Awning Fabric on Carefree

We recently purchased a 2003 HR Endeavor motorhome. One of the three slides is under the main Carefree awning. As a result, the material of the awning is thinning where it comes in close contact with the corners of the slide...probably caused by the movement of the awning in the wind. It hasn't created holes in the awning yet, but we'd like to put some sort of patch on each of those two spots to reinforce the awning material, to prevent holes from developing. Can anyone give us any advice on available products that we could look into that would serve our purpose?
Thank you.

Something quick and easy would just to use awning repair tape that way it will wear on that first and you can just peel it off and re apply every few months or so. Any other type of patch would be noticeable and either way you will have to redo it ever so often. Since you will need that replaceable wear surface. Unless you raise your awning or change the pitch.

Awning tape is my thought too. I used some on the seams of a topper that was damaged and it worked for years ...easy, adheres very well, tough, flexible, and blends in very well
