    We have a tribute motorhome with an awning but when it rains the water just runs through and you get wet through coming out of the door. Any suggestions for what we can put along the awning to stop with happening. I have seen fiamma drip stop but wasn't sure if this would be right

    you need to fit a rubber strip to the joint between van and awning called a rain guard

    Product Description

    Fiamma Rain Guard Large

    For awnings, mounted with adapter spaced out from the wall (up to 9cm) or on curved walls.
    Sold by the metre., measure the length of your awning e.g = 3 metre and order quantity 3 etc.
    Fiamma Rain Guard Large is a convenient rubber guard to seal the space between the Fiamma awning and the vehicle wall to prevent water from infiltrating. It is installed to the case without removing the awning.

    it takes longer to put the ladder up than fit the rubber trim as it just pushes into the bead slot. if its cold, warm the rubber in hot water first to make it easier
