We purchased the awning factory tie down system from the USA distributor. It is pretty nice. We do like most, never leave it out at night or when you leave the camp site. It goes out and in very quickly.
We also purchased the lower awning gasket to eliminate the waterfall that occurs as the rain cascades off the roof. It works well and just presses into place and does not come loose on the road. We can leave the awning out in a rain and with the gasket everything under the awning, including the entry door, stays dry. Another benifit is some have reported interior leaks
as water cascades down the side and into the fridge
vents, the gasket also seems to help with that. You can search utube and find a video a guy did regarding installing his.
