If you are looking for rv insurance, or curious about the cost of an rv awning repair, then this article might be helpful.
Our rv awning was recently damaged by a very sudden, very brief, and very gusty little storm. We are staying the La Hacienda RV Park in Austin TX [ I’m going to do an updated video and make it much better than one I’ve linked, but for now… ].
It turns out that near Lake Travis winds can be very gusty. Maybe that is why at least one part of the lake is called Windy Point.
It is true that I have written several articles on securing the rv awning and had I actually secured my awning after we had retracted it recently instead of being lazy, we would still have an awning (and the $500 insurance deductible). But I’m out both and I’ll update you so you can learn from my experience.
First, here is a list of the articles I’ve written that explain to me that I know better:
- Secure the awning the old fashioned way : Bring it in if you are not with it or your are going to leave even for 15 minutes.
- Secure the rv awning using a Walmart RV Awning tie down kit.
- Secure the awning correctly using your own awning tie down components. This is the best way if you are going to leave your awning out.
