We had the pop-up opened the last few days to check how to handled the winter and air it out.  The forecast is 50 mph winds, 3 inches of rain and changing to snow.  That didn't last long, closed her back up this morning.

We're into NM spring (I live at 6000' in ABQ). Snow flurries the other day, pollen counts bouncing all over the place, saw a forsythia in bloom today, it's 63. High wind and fire danger warnings for Sunday. We are in dire need of moisture, though finally have a bit of snow on the mountains east of town.
We uncovered the TT last weekend, on a breezy day. The first trip isn't until April, so I have a month to re-stock, finish a couple of projects (it was too cold to caulk the new sink/faucet combo when my husband installed it at Christmas), etc.

Massive winds yesterday so we went over today to check out the trailer.  Still too windy to take off the cover but we found one corner that ripped where the spout sticks out.  So much for "reinforced" corners when the wind is so bad it shifts that cover a bit!

Any way to strap a pool noodle on to that spot so the spout doesn't stick through next year?

Pool noodle will easily just stick on the spout, I do it to mine and they are right where they belong in the spring.  My problem is the awning corner, where the little flippy thing is that allows it to roll down, that is pointy emough to create a tear.

Last year we did tennis balls and I still have them.  Just didn’t use them this year sine the cover came with these little “boot” things.
