          We noticed about a 2-3″ tear in our awning. What does the group recommend to repair/fix it? Thanks

              Camco has awning repair tape: https://www.amazon.com/camco-42613-awning-repair-tape/dp/B005SB6Q2W?th=1

              If it’s under warranty you might be able to get it replaced.

                  Sail report tape works excellent. I know other shave used gorilla tape, whi4ch you can get from just about any local hardware or department store.

                      With a tear that small I’d just use one of the tape kits mentioned above. But if it gets worse, Camping World replaced mine for under $250, which I didnt think was too bad (if you didnt want to do it yourself).

                          Update – we ordered the Camco tape from Amazon, came yesterday and applied it without a problem. Seems to be sticking extremely well. We rolled up and unrolled the awning several times, no issues. We’ll see how it holds up this season. Thanks!
