Not had time to revisit the caravan where we store it but we left it's awning stood in the caravan shower for water to hopefully run off.

During the major downpour (the night one) at Billing one of our awning poles was badly bent due to water pooling on the roof. Paul @Kenzie said he might have one (thanks for the offer mate) but I'll need to check it's design and length etc before knowing what will be needed.

I managed to get mine up on Tuesday and used my pet dryer from the inside to dry it off. Then while it was up re waterproofed it.

Cheers Malc, I'll keep that it mind and let you know how I get on :)

At Billing it was a good job I woke up at 545AM for a drink of water after supping so much ale and went for a cig in the awning... which is when I noticed the bow in the roof of the awning or I'm sure it would have collapsed. Me and 'missus spent 20 minutes moving the caravan step to push up on the roof to get water off and then I had to invert the bent pole to prevent the same (water pooling on awning roof) happening again.
