Not really. I don't like rigging down everything under the awning, and don't like it all getting soaked, but that's just me. It's one of those things that a lot of made remarks on, until they installed one, used it, then retracted that statement. I'm not trying to sell anybody on it, just throwing ideas out there, and know what has worked on ours and 100's of others in less than desirable weather. I only use the awning supports probably 25% of the time. That's what's great about ours, it is self storing and stays on the awning. Nothing really to rig down. Once set up, it makes it more of a ridged structure. Rigging down? Pull the 2 straps loose and power the awning in. The poles fold back on their own. I mentioned earlier, but I'll post pictures of our specific set up once I'm home. They are a little different than the pictures I already posted.
