By Pete | My Husband’s Corner

We hate the noise made by a retractable RV awning when it’s flapping in the wind! When we bought our latest RV, we were on our first trip when we realized our old RV awning tiedown strap was not long enough for our new awning! So, I had to figure out how to tie down an awning with the supplies I had in my tool box! Turns out … this DIY hack works better than our old traditional awning strap kit! I created this VIDEO to show you how to tie down your RV patio awning with my DIY hack! Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

Step 4:

Cut the 1/8-Inch Nylon Rope to the appropriate size (our awning required about 10 feet). Then tie one end of the rope to the carabiner clip. Now take the other end of the rope and run it through the two holes in the large camring and then tie a knot at the end. NOTE: If you tie the knot in the end of the rope before you string it through the large camring, you won’t get it through the camring holes. 😤 Follow the sequence as I describe it here to avoid frustration. 🤜🤛 *fistbump*

Step 5:

Hang the Carabiner Clip from the bungee hooks and just let the rope hang down toward the stake.

&


Step 6:

Run the knotted end of the rope through the stake. NOTE: The knot (you did this in step 4) eventually holds the rope in place in the camring notch … just like you see in the step 7 picture.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you get the LARGE CamRing size because the small size does not have the notch needed to secure the rope for this project!

Step 8:

With a slight amount of pressure, pull down on the carabiner clip to tighten bungee while adjusting the large camring (up or down) to remove slack from the cord.


Repeat steps on the other end of the awning.


BAM … You’re Done!

That is how to keep your RV awning from flapping in the wind AND avoid marriage counseling at the same time! Ha! Now kick back and camp! 😎
