RV Awnings Damaged in Storm
Damaged RV Awning
We are currently in Houston Texas. Where high wind storms are expected during hurricane season. This storm blew in and in a matter of a few minutes had ripped through the RV Park leaving dozens of trailers with damaged awnings. The winds were up to 60 miles per hour.
The folks who had their RV awnings out didn't have a chance to put them back in since the storm came in so fast.
Others who had theirs anchored to the ground with those Happy Hook Awning Tie-Down System that burrow into the soil or that are used as a pet tie-out stake - those can hold your awning down, but they secure the awning tight and don't allow for super high winds that will whip it about.
The only folks who had an awning out that survived the storm were using the Power Hook Awning Tensioner (tension springs) so their awnings had some give as the wind and rain was whipping and pounding on it.
This storm was strong enough to bring down a couple of trees in the RV Park, but those using these tension springs survived...amazing!
