First few years we wintered in south Texas and once set up we always left our awning out . I used a thing called the claw it's used to tie airplanes down with worked really well along with the de flappers. I now have a automatic awning and it just doesn't look strong enough so we never leave it out unattended

When we had our last TT we had a manual awning and the deflappers worked great. Now have an electric awning and can't use them any more.

I made 2 tie down stands for our electric awning that was in the mod section. We have been here in the White Mountains of Az and have some real strong winds with rain and our awning has not ever moved. Was not to keen on tying it down but so far so good.
