Slide awning support to stop rain pooling

I have a Miramar 35.3 and the long slide has water pool on the awning does anyone have any support systems they bought or made to keep the awning from sagging and collecting water when it rains.
Please send pictures

Rather than run the risk of collapsing the awning, or letting it get moldy: why not just pull it in when the weather isn't co-operating?

I believe they are talking about the ‘slide cover’ awnings. They are out anytime the slide is out.

I like that idea... just inflate a beach ball to fit under one end of slide cover.
