Varese awnings are a wonderful feature to have in your RV. There are different Kinds of RV awnings and they serve different functions. There are door and window awnings that provide shade over your RV windows or entrance door. There are slide out awnings that protect out the slide roof from water and debris
The cloth used on awnings is made from acrylic or vinyl. Some awnings have an aluminium or plastic wrap around weather protector that protects the awning fabric when it is in the travelling position. When you start the awning for the first time annually, or if it is been stored for some time, you will have to inspect the awning fabric for any signs of stains or meld. Vinyl awnings will mildew.
If the awning fabric is fairly clean, regular cleaning can be achieved using a soft brush and mild soap and water. Do not use oil based or abrasive cleansers. Clean and thoroughly rinse each side of the awning. For more difficult stains, or mould, you will find after market commercial cleaners created just for awning fabrics.
Inspect the awning fabric for any tears or excessive wear. Do not store the awning once the cloth is wet. Allow it to dry thoroughly on either side before storing. You may wash out the awning hardware using the same cleaner you use to wash the RV. While the awning is out, inspect the awning hardware.
The bottom awning brackets support the majority of the load from the tende da sole varese. Check the lag screws at the awning brackets are tight. Inspect the arm pivot holes for any enlarged holes broken rivets from the grips. Check for a warped roller tube. If the roller tube is warped it is going to be noticeable once you roll the awning out. Inspect the end caps for secure mounting and broken rivets.
Make sure that the awning rail is securely mounted to the side of the RV. Have any broken or damaged parts repaired before using the awning. Besides scrutinizing and cleaning your awning there are a couple of things to bear in mind while using the awning. Consistently lower one end of the awning to allow for water runoff. The weight from water pooling on the awning fabric can cause extensive and expensive damage.
Wind gusts more than twenty mph can also cause extensive damage to the awning and into the RV. Never leave the awning out unattended. If everybody is leaving the campsite, store the awning in the travelling position. When you go to bed, store the awning. Even when you are in the campsite, you need to use awning tie downs to avoid any sudden damage due to high wind gusts or a sudden storm.
