    Hi All :Smile:

    Last summer we pitched up at a lovely site in france on our first 'big' trip since buying our motorhome.

    Unfortunately, we had pretty awful windy weather which blew up overnight. I sent hubby 'muttering and cursing' out to wind in our fiamma awning only for it to get stuck! We couldn't see much in the dark and we got a bit impatient with it only for it to clank and judder up into place.

    In the morning, we found that a pine cone had got stuck in it and we ripped a hole in it :cry:

    Any suggestions on where and how to get it fixed?

    Thanks

    repair

    Sorry never heard of anyone repairing Pine Cones...:Rofl1:

    Ok sorry for that I just felt like being a wag.

    You can buy a tape repair kit for just such occasions, Don`t know how bad the damage is but if you use the tape on both sides it should make a good repair.
