Creaking slide out cover awnings
My slide out covers on a 2014 motorhome creak in a mild wind. Sounds like a sailboat sail creaking while underway. Carefree awnings. The sound seems to originate from the ends of the awnings. Very annoying--any fixes???

We have this issue too, especially in high winds on the main full wall slide where the topper is extremely wide and more susceptible to wind intrusion. I either stuff the front or rear of the slide with a comforter or matress foam piece to keep the wind from entering between the top of the slide and the topper. This seems to correct the situation.
