awning questions

So the wife & I just got a new awning installed on the mighty Eagle & also bought the sunblocker seeing as how the mighty Eagle is parked at just the right angle to let about a bajillion heat rays on the side of the camper this summer !!!
Of course as soon as I got home from work ( even though it was only 60 degrees and cloudy ) we HAD to put on the sunblocker and try it out !!! Everything went great !!! The sun blocker is 17X6 and we just rolled it up inside the awning when we rolled up the awning. Maybe I missed it but is it ok to do this ???

We just roll the awning up with our sun screen when sitting. When we move the trailer we take the sun screen off and store it in the trailer storage. We have an electric awning.

Mesh screen that can go into the channels in the awning. They ROCK! Cuts down on direct sun. Very handy.

these are great! We roll ours up in the awning for storage, but we have noticed that you have to make sure that it is centered or the awning will not suck up tight on one side.
