Eternabond for awning

I have pinholes from sun damage on the top part of awning closest to trailer when closed. I’ve tried gorilla tape and awning repair tape, neither worked for very long. Has anyone put eternabond tape on this area of awning? What were the results?
Thanks in advance for yours responses.

I haven't tried it on an awning but on several different surfaces. I always caution whomever I may "loan" a piece of it to to be sure to put it where you want it the first time 'cause "it ain't moving." I bet that would apply to awnings as well. Might try a small piece first. Good luck.

Not sure but I think they make a sealer for awning that would seal up the pin holes.

I used a piece of Eternabond to repair a small rip in a slide topper, right where the fabric attaches to the wall of the TT. It has held up for two years so far.

If you are just taking care of small holes, something like this will do the trick:

I used a similar product on a trailer awning and it worked well for just taking care of small holes. I've also used the Camco awning repair tape and it worked. It won't last as long as Eternabond, but it is much thinner and transparent. You probably won't see it very easily once it's applied. However, this Gorilla tape is not as pricey and Gorilla products tend to be darned good:

I remember seeing a repair kit like eternabond to fix the exposed part of an awning due to sun damage. I almost used it but it was about $100 and the install would be a do or die thing. So I just had the awning material replaces. Many awnings have that aluminum cover now.

On our vintage m/h I used awning repair tape which lasted a few years. Then a couple years ago I removed the awning fabric, cut the damaged 8" out, and re-sewed the cord into awning. I then re-installed it. It worked well and the loss of the 8" has never been missed.

I have used sail tape with success. I got mine from a scrap bin at a windsurf shop.
