Question Cover for rolled up awning?

Does anyone out there use some sort of cover for their awning when it is rolled up in order to protect it from the sun?

Try a forum search. I remember one of the members making one out of a length of rain gutter.

Edit: https://www.jaycoowners.com/showthrea...ghlight=gutter It's slow around here this morning so I did the search for you. The Awning-Pro-tec looks like an excellent product, I'm a DIY type and usually go the less expensive way. I like the gutter because it's open on the bottom.

I have been kicking this around too. I'm not as much concerned about UV deterioration as I am annoyed with water "wicking" into the ends causing mold and fabric stretching. Open bottom lessens the chance of collecting / holding water....JMHO

They grip the roll pretty tight and the end extends past the fabric an inch or so and snugs up against the arm making a pretty nice seal.
Some of the home made ones are nice but I think the store-bought is better.

Thanks "OnTheGo". That's pretty much what I am looking for...something functional but inexpensive while parked at the storage lot. I like the pro-tech product a lot but at something like $6.25 per foot, I can't see the cost benefit...know what I mean?

Like the others that have this type, works GREAT down here in the Florida sun. Purchased a set when I got our 2013 Eagle last year.

I imagine this would also be good to protect against hail damage......
