RV awnings serve many purposes, and are a great feature to have on any RV to maximize your camping and traveling experience.

Awnings can provide shade and protection from rain, protect from debris, and even extend the amount of living area you can use.

Awnings come in many styles, colors and lengths, and serve different functions. The basic awning is used on the passenger side of the RV to provide shade and protection for the patio area.

Other awnings include window awnings that will provide shade and a cooler interior, and slide room awnings that will help keep acorns, sticks, leaves, and other debris from dropping on the top of the room. If the room is retracted with this debris, it will tear up the seal and cause moisture issues.

There are also awnings for front entry doors on the diesel pushers, as well as a whole host of accessories.

Most awnings require little maintenance. However, it’s a good idea to clean and dry the awning fabric before putting it away, and condition the fabric once a year to help keep it resistant from moisture.

This class will help identify the type of fabric your awning has, acrylic or vinyl, and what conditioner is best. You’ll also learn some tips on troubleshooting a broken or non-operating awning, as well as a bent slider arm.

In addition to the detailed video instruction you’ll receive, this class provides you with some downloadable information including a detailed Class Guide you can follow and use as a reminder for the key points of the class instruction and resource documents that will help you with maintenance and troubleshooting on some of the most popular types of awnings.
