    Just wrote this up, I’ll leave it here incase it can help anyone..

    Anyone have any fabric rips, tares, holes that need fixing? Decided to get some pics and write a positive review on some repair tape after being happy with the fix. I started to get some small tears and eventually holes in my awning, figured it was getting old and didn’t pay any mind to any cause of the damage. I wanted to get around to fixing it cuz it was getting worse.. Ordered this Gear Aid fabric repair tape on Amazon, says it can repair jackets, tents, sleeping bags etc.. and bonds to a variety of material. Even tho it says no heat needed I warmed up the tape and fabric with a heat gun right before adhearing it. I did an inside and outside patch. In a few minutes when it was completely cooled it seemed super solid and looked like it will hold up over time nicely.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001949Z4I?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_yo_pop_mb_pd_t2




    While doing the repair I realized what’s causing this..
    While on the beach a few years ago a gust of wind flipped the awning up over the truck. I ordered a couple parts from ARB including two new telescoping post. Never realizing at install the one mounting screw for each side needed to be inwards.. one side was in and the side tearing the fabric was out. With trail vibrations the screw head was eating away at the fabric. All fixed now and lesson learned.




    While fixing the awning I figured I’d address the zipper. I lost the pull piece on one of the zippers so I replaced it with a key ring. Worked good and thought about cutting the other off and adding a second key ring.. before that the first key ring had already rusted. I scratched that idea and just used paracord. Very pleased with that fix as well. I remember reading @2012Taco build and he added heat shrink tubing to his zipper pulls to eliminate them clanging together.. this solves that as well.
