Depending on the extent of your RV awning repair it can be as simple as a proper cleaning, or you may need to do a complete RV awning replacement.
The first step in determining your repair needs is to thoroughly inspect your fabric and mechanisms to determine what needs fixing.
Check all parts including; arm locking knobs, mounting brackets, pull straps, handles, pins, bolt assemblies, and the sliding arm locks.
When inspecting the fabric you should be checking for any tears, cuts, or pinholes. Look for rot and mildew caused by water or moisture trapped on the fabric when rolled up.
Minimal damage is fairly easy to fix using awning repair tape for small rips or punctures. The clear tape is durable, and has great adhesion even on damp surfaces.
Fabric that is severely worn out or leaking may need a full replacement or an upgrade might be the best idea. If damage to the fabric is extensive, but your mounting hardware is still in working condition then consider using RV awning replacement fabric for your repairs.

Old worn out fabrics can be replaced with a new awning replacement fabric which are available in a wide variety of beautiful colors and patterns for every type of RV.
