That looks like a great idea for the awning is the bungee to hold the awning to a pitch.so that rain runs off better

Hey when you talk about awning arm tensioners is that an after market item sold at RV stores. What exactly are they for, wind and stuff when awning out. Please explain thank you.

Just saw your pictures, do you mean the bungee cords around the awning arm. HHMMM never tried that, interesting, if that's what you meant. Does it work

Moalllen, Where did you place the water tank? and has it helped with the vibrations in the camper when you turn on and faucets? Thanks

I know why you added the strip of wood under nightstand; could you detail that mod for me? Looks like a great solution. Thanks

He does mean the bungee cords, I do the same thing to keep my Lippert awning at the correct pitch. Without them every puff of wind causes the awing to move upwards, loosing its pitch. Carefree and Dometic don't have this problem, as their design is much better.
