Can I close my awning when it is wet from the rain?

In the category The living area of the van

If there is a strong wind, the awning should be closed immediately, even when it is wet. However, it is strongly recommended to open it again within 24 hours to allow it to dry sufficiently. It is also necessary to make sure that there are no branches or leaves left on top of the awning fabric when the awning is closed, as this could cause small tears.
