Hi,Here’s the dilemma. To leave alone or take down when the weather is very very bad?
My take is leave it alone. A decent awning is designed to withstand winds. Our Isabella has never failed. 15 years ago FIL at 5.00 am de iced to take his awning down in the high winds. A disaster. As he removed the securing pegs and guys the canvas blew over the top of the caravan causing £ 2500 damage plus a written off awning. One of the poles at speed hit him in the face knocking him out.
I say don’t put your life at risk, leave the awning and hope for the best!
I remember years ago,our neighbour's awning was threatening to blow down during a violent wind and rain storm.Everyone nearby went to the rescue and managed to take the awning down (I don't think it was put up securely in the first place)
It took about 6 or 7 people to do this.So I guess it depends on the situation- if the awning is secure then leave it alone otherwise get help to take it down.
