Can you perform an RV awning repair by yourself? The short answer is – probably. The real question is – should you? That question is a little harder to answer. It really depends on the extent to the repairs that need to be done. Here are some things to consider before trying any repairs yourself:
Are You the DIY Type?
Do you often fix things yourself around the house, or on your car? Do you change your own oil on your car, fix minor plumbing leaks in the bathroom, or build shelves for the laundry room? If so, then you may be just the right person to your own RV awning repair. If you can’t tell the difference between a hammer and a wrench, well, then you may want to get repairs done by a professional. Of course, small tears can happen at any time, and for a quick fix, you’ll want to keep RV awning repair tape on hand, just until you can get the repair done properly. We have a selection of tape and other repair kits that you shouldn’t leave home without!
Making Your Awning Last
Your awning is an integral part of your overall camping experience. It can protect you from the sweltering heat, short but intense rain storms and too much exposure from the sun. That’s why it’s important to take care of it and make it last as long as possible. Here are a few tips:
- Always secure your awning to protect it from winds and harsh weather conditions
- Inspect it regularly to make sure there are no tears
- Clean it regularly with vinyl spray to help prevent mildew
- When setting it up, put one side lower so water runs off easily
- Make sure your awing is dry before long-term storage
- Fix any repairs before storing your RV
