I would agree with eldermike about rolling it up when you leave the area, i have lost a couple of awnings in my day . Especialley here in texas we deal the low pressure coming from the gulf meeting with those systems coming from the north

Camper1 it is not attached. The saddle is the perfect size for the awning tube to just sit in the saddle. I would not use bunggie cords because it will have too much play in a wind and lift your awning enough for poles to fall out and then you are as good as not having anything.

Jackpoles I am sure work just the same.

When I sinch it down I can push up and down on the awning tube and it doesn't move. And with the hose clamp for adjusting it I can adjust to any height I want.

You can tie down the awning arms all you want but in a big wind the fabric will still flap away and could tear.

Just roll up the awning when storm approaching or if you leave the rig for a period of time.
