It survived all heavy storms but the last one. I should have seen it coming, that the easy-up mechanism was the weak link in that construction, which could not hold the weight of rain-water not running down the cover fast enough.
It's total kaput now, several rods are broken or bent, making a repair impossible. At least my WSM was still standing intact.
I already fetched a new pavilion today, which has no easy-up mechanism, but a steel pipe construction. I'll post a picture of my cooking area with the new pavilion in my cooking report of next weekend's cook.
