RV Awning Damage & Replacement
Here are some photographs from one of our customers. The customer said the awning was left out when the wind took it.
The issue with awning damage is that in some instances, the damage can be more than just replacing the awning. Here are some common issues that we've run into when replacing an awning:
- Damage in the camper such as pulling the screws / bolts out leaving the holes to large to just reuse
- Bending (aluminum frame)
- Damaging the structure of the camper
- Bending siding
- Often the awning will pull out the wiring leaving damaged wires in the wall that require replacement.
Benefits of awnings:
The benefits of RV awnings are many to anyone installing them. You can enjoy several perks of investing in a good-quality awning for your RV.
1. It blocks sun rays effectively
Sun exposure will result in annoying heat. Also, it’s harmful because it contains UVB and UVA rays. An RV awning provides shade and protects its occupants from direct exposure to sun rays.
2. It helps control the temperature
Apart from blocking sun rays, RV awnings offer temperature control as well. A good-quality awning will make sure that you remain comfortable even if the day is hotter. RV awnings will provide shade and can decrease the temperature by 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
3. RV awnings come with temperature resistant design
RV awnings have temperature-tolerant designs. Installing them will help you handle solar heat efficiently. In addition, they can withstand wind and rain. In general, an RV awning can withstand wind speeds of up to 23 miles per hour. Anything above the said mph might not be safe and will make the awning susceptible to damage.
4. Lasts for many years
An RV awning is a great investment because of its long-lasting durability. You can expect a high-quality RV awning to last for about 15 years. Therefore, consider buying an awning that is built with good materials.
5. It has a portable design
You can use RV awnings when you need them. Besides, you can retract the awnings when you don’t use them. They have a portable design so that they can move with the RV with ease. Also, you don’t have to worry about the awning coming out of the way.
6. It provides overhead protection
In addition to the shade, the awnings offer overhead protection. If the RV is parked under a tree, the sticks, leaves, or other debris won’t fall directly on your head. Also, you can enjoy drinks and food peacefully.
Types of damages caused to the awnings:
Depending on the extent of damage caused, your RV awning may look worse or better for wear. There could be bigger rips or minor tears. Below listed are the common types of awning damage.
- Big tears - Typically, it refers to the damage that covers over three feet in length. If there was a small hole and you ignored it, chances are that the awning could have a large tear on a stormy day or windy conditions.
- Big holes - Big holes are gouges that might be the result of someone poking through the awning, ignoring small holes, or harsh weather conditions. Rain and sunlight will peer through the hole easily.
- Small tears - These tears measure 3 feet or even less. Although they are visible, they are manageable. If you patch them fast, the tears won’t become bigger.
- Small holes - If you feel raindrops while sitting under the awning, perhaps there is a hole so small that you have to find it out. However, if you continue using the awning with small holes, it will grow eventually.
