Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Batwing and Foxwing Awnings Replacement Hinge Insert Kit Review

Adam: What's going on everybody Adam with Etrailer and we have a broken hinge on our bat wing awning. As you can see right here that is broke. The bottom two and the top two or what they're supposed to look like. So, we actually do have the replacement part at Etrailer on our website. So go ahead and check it out if you're having this issue. Today, we're going to be replacing these.Just to make it easy on ourselves, we're actually going to remove these two bars.

They haven't broken yet. So we just need a little Phillips to undo that screw and it should come right out. This will be an extremely easier fix if we had a couple more hands with us.All right once you take that out, this tube should just come right out. First thing we want to do is find the right size Allen key to fit in the top like that. And then I am using a half inch socket for the bottom nut.

We might need to use power tools here, but we didn't have it too tight so it's coming off by hand, just like that. We can pull the big long bolt through. And now we're going to have two different pieces, one on the bottom like this and same exact one on top, but our top ones are intact still. So, we're going to leave the top one in there. But now, we can take these guys out.

All right. Now we can take our replacement parts, put them in just like that. Take our plastic piece from the bottom, take our bolt from the top, feed that down through. Put that washer on there and now the nut. And then, of course we're just going to grab our Allen key and our socket and tighten that down.So now we can go ahead and start to reassemble all of our rods.

Well, as you guys saw, it was a very quick and easy installation process. All we really needed was a couple tools to get the job done real quick. And even if I had maybe a couple of extra set of hands, it would have been a lot quicker. So, this is also going to be for not only the Batwing awning, but also your Foxwing awning. So now that that's done and everything's fixed, I'm just going to go ahead and go back to enjoy my awning. Again, thanks for watching. Adam with Etrailer.

Typically when a company designs a product to break that's a bad thing, but not so much here. Rhino-Rack beats the competition once again and designed their hinges to break when too much force is applied instead of bending the entire awning. I had my foxwing set up and got distracted (squirrel!) then a huge gust of wind came up over the hill and the entire awning lifted up and flopped over onto my truck! I expected to see bent metal and a ruined awning but instead it was only two hinges that snapped right at the base. Bummer for sure but the rack was unharmed and the new parts were an easy replacement with basic tools. I now keep an extra hinge in the attached pouch on my awning. Pro-tip, stake down those awnings!


Comments
One year later and Ive finally figured out that its a good idea to stake down the awning so I dont need to keep buying these replacement hinges. I still keep extras in my toolbox just in case of emergencies.

Our batwing awning hing broke after high wind and e trailer saved us by getting part to us within same week of order!

Our batwing wound up breaking in a wind storm. This was the exact part we needed to fix it and put it back into working order. Super quick shipping as well!

Have waited for months for Rhino to make parts available! Thanks to etrailer who stayed on top of my order I finally received them. FYI, ET send them out immediately and it took the pathetic postal service almost 3 weeks to deliver them! Thank you ET for your perseverance!

The hinge is quick and easy to install and fits perfectly. As the hinge is the pivot point for the awning and takes the weight while opening and closing it would be much better if it were made out of a more durable material, even if it were at the expense of a bit of extra weight.

Wind is the enemy of any awning. My batwing awning has been the best addition to my setup. but 40-60 mph winds flipped it up last month and broke three of the hinges. but the ingenious design of the batwing makes the hinge the "weak point" on purpose. Replace a cheap hinge versus buy an whole new awning for 800? took 10 minutes to swap out three hinges. very easy. Everyone should have some spare hinges in your kit.



- RRCA1175

We snapped these because the racks hold down stake bag flips over when you open the Batwing and if you do not flip it over to clear the cover before storing it again, then it snaps these pivot bracket.



- RRCA1175

These are great spare parts to have as they are design to break if strong winds are present and your awning is not tied down. I learned the hard way to not tie down the awning as the day was calm, but it quickly changed. Always tie down your awning and have spare parts on hand. Etrailer customer service was great in working with me and helping me get some spares quick so I can continue on my road trip through Panamerica.

The part was not in stock originally and I was told that it would be sometime before it would ship but you kept me updated on the status which was greatly appreciated, and i received the replacement parts quicker than expected. Thank you for your great customer service.

Works as designed, to be the ‘weakest link’ in the system with the batwing awning. Would be great if they were a little stronger, but cheap and easy to replace.



- RRCA1175
by:

Still haven't needed to use these yet, but they stay in the trailer just in case.



- RRCA1175
by:

Great product, I would like them to be a bit more stronger maybe they are like that to be acting like a fuse to protect the awning



- RRCA1175
by:

Pretty simple, these replace the plastic bits on the Foxwing or Batwing 270 degree awnings that sometimes break. Mine got caught in a sudden burst of wind right as I was trying to deploy the awning, snapping the plastic bits. Ordered these, they were shipped and delivered very quickly, and I was back in business in short order. And they have performed beautifully so far.

This product was on backorder from Rhino Rack due to a faulty mfg process. This affected new Batwing units and replacement parts alike and was no fault of eTrailer. Carol kept in contact with updates and made the entire transaction smooth. Will shop again.



- RRCA1175
by:

These are a hard part to review. On one hand they are the weak point and break. On the other, they are easily replaceable and prevent the awning from damage that cannot be fixed. They work at what they do.

Service was excellent, parts were delivered quickly,

Two of the Delrin hinges for my Rhino Rack Batwing (also purchased from etrailer.com) broke after a surprise 40+ mph gust of wind caught all of us by surprise. I believe this is an intentional feature from the manufacturer designed to prevent snapping poles, etc. I used the two extra hinges included with the awning to easily repair the awning. I purchased these extra hinges “just in case” and keep them in the accessory pouch that’s a part of the awning.

This is a great product and the customer service was excellent. I bought a second pair to keep with my camper in case we have to make repairs while travelling. I bookmarked etrailer as well.

Very useful to keep extra parts around during long overland trips. Great service at etrailer, provided updates regarding backorder status. Will order from etrailer again!

Must have spares...Overland at monache meadows when a rogue wind gust hit my batwing.
