You have to watch the weather,if it's to windy
for the awning, then I would not put the patio
room up.the patio room helps in not making the awing
a big sail in the wind,when it is up. In ten years the DW
and I had to go out one time, at 11pm in a snow storm,take the
patio room down, roll up the awing no stress, we started
laughing because,the snow would build up on the awing
faster then I could get it off.nothing broke and the awing
did not get torn off.next day looked at the pictures we
that night took and just laugh part of camping experience.
WE to have a peace that attaches to the rv,also keeps the wind
from blowing under the trailer to where you are sitting. I didn't
use the hardware that came with the patio room, to attach to
the trailer,I used velcro works very well, did not want to drill
any holes in the side of trailer.
