Awning wind speed limits?

Does anyone know of, or have an opinion about, the wind-speed limits for the awning? I probably retract the awning too often for fear of a gust sending it sailing into the next county.

Thanks;
Dave

No idea on wind speeds, but I can say having the screen room option up does reduce the effect on the awning flapping around.

Better too often than not often enough.

Most of the rain in this area is accompanied by sprightly wind (as am I after a good meal of rice and beans). We've used our awning more for shade than wind protection, but I wouldn't be without it.

Best to drive with the awning closed than to test it on a freeway for wind speed tolerance

Hi: Garand...If you want to see the "Wind-speed limits for the awning"...watch the movie RV with Robin Williams!!! Also a good lesson on draining the black water tank too . Alf
escape artist N.S. of Lake Erie p.s. You can buy the Carefree anti-flap straps/clamps to attach to the arms. I think they're shown in the awnings owners manual!!!
