Awning leak

I am having a problem of water getting into my awning with it rolled up. When i get to the campsite and unroll it it is soaking wet. I am afraid this will lead to moisture damage from mildew etc. anyone else having this issue?

They all do that. Some of the available covers may offer some solution; however, they are primarily for sun protection.

If you find something please let us all know. You are absolutely right about the moisture damage and mildew.

Same here, no way to keep the water out. Regular maintenance to keep it from molding.

Does it get wet when you retract rolling it clockwise (as seen from the side), as opposed to counterclockwise. Larry

I roll mine clockwise or under. Water does not get it.

this brings 2 quick questions to mind. First, I didn't know there was a choice in which direction it rolls up. How do you change the direction? Mine is electric. Second, by rolling clockwise, does it expose the sewn edge to the sun vs counterclockwise which i think would cover the sewn edge?

My last 5er had a manual awning and it was wet every time I unrolled it. It ws 12 years old and the moisture never caused a problem.

Glad to know it wont cause damage. I had to use chemicals and get the mildew off last time.
