You don’t need to go hide in your RV every time a thunderstorm gets blasting. Personally, I find rainstorms to be some of the most beautiful moments in RV living.
There’s something about being able to sit on the peacefulness of your porch, sip a nice cup of tea, and watch the rainfall.
You can smell the life of the trees and the rain. You can almost hear the vegetation gasp as it drinks the cool water falling from the sky.
To really enjoy these types of storms, however, you need RV awnings to be in perfect condition. RV awnings help us enjoy the climatic weather without being subjected to the deluge.
You can just go back to reading your book as the rainstorms rage and fall. You don’t have to worry about the tablecloth or the cherry pie you’re having for lunch. All you need to do is smell the rain and turn the page.
It’s a perfect way to enjoy a rainy afternoon, not even caring that the water’s falling from the sky.
A hole in an awning, however, can ruin the perfect picture. It’s important to keep all holes closed up so you can enjoy your RV awning to its utmost potential.
You can get repair kits that take care of any problems. These can be applied on the road. Some are as easy as a patch but will last for years. It can take a ragged awning and fix it up as good as new, allowing you to enjoy your rainstorm in peace.
It’s also no good to have RV awnings that shake too much in the wind. Wind can destabilize the base, causing it to shake, possibly resulting in tears and other permanent damage.
You can buy stabilizers and structural reinforcements for a more solid base even in the harshest of winds.
A good brace adds strength to your frame so you can just let the winds blow. Why should you care? You’ve got a book and a cup of tea to get back to.
