AWNING - A waterproof roof-like structure made of canvas or other artificial material which extends from the RV body to provide shade. Awnings are generally placed over entrances. Some extend and stow manually while others are operated electrically. Particular care needs to be shown when stowing as it is not uncommon for the awning to deploy whilst travelling.
