small holes in awning

I just notice about 7 pin-size holes in the awning. they are along the outside edge of where it attaches to the MH., they are so small that its hard to notice but when looking up can see light. Is there anything to use that could seal these tiny holes in an awning? thanks

They make a clear tape for awning repairs, no reason that wouldn't work. Even a small dab of Dircor smeared into the tiny holes should hold up a very long time.

If its a water seal you're looking for , I've used paraffin wax on a vinyl awning I had. Winnebago suggested it at the time.

I had the same issue with mine. I put a dab of ProFlex liquid on them and believe me it works. It poured Memorial Weekend with no leaks.

If your awning is made of woven acrylic, as opposed to vinyl, you can use "Liquid Stitch".
