The awning's "status" is always under review. We try to keep it out as much as possible and will just lower a corner during light/moderate rainfall unless there is the threat of severe weather close by, then we roll it up.
The only other time we roll it up is if we are leaving the campsite for more than an hour or so.
Since we are almost never out of cell phone range, smartphone radar and weather warnings are a wonderful thing that assist us in keeping awnings out as much as possible.
