the power awning on my 2008 Flagstaff 831RLSS has an adjustment on just one side...near the rear door...much rather would have had it on the front side...as when you set the awning to have the rear lower...the rear door rubs on the canopy when you open the door...duh...might look into seeing how hard it would be to change it around and put the adjustment arm on the front someday...

On mine each arm has a black dial that you can turn to loosen the adjustment bar. After you loosen it you can then raise and lower the end to allow water to run off. I would take a picture of it but the trailer is at the campground now. Sorry.

It's a push button automatic awning. In the SP302BHD, the switch is built into the entertainment center and is located on the right side when you walk in the door.

There is also available a little "roller thingy" that attaches to the door. A little wheel makes contact with the awning and reduces wear from the door dragging across the awning fabric. Under $5.

Just a little input, while at the RV show in Hershey we looked at the V-Cross by Forest River. This is an up-scale Forest River product so we were told. The power awning that comes standard is an A&E as well, but it can be fully adjusted from both sides just like a manual awning can. The other thing I noticed is that the Rockwood models have lower roofs then the V-Cross and on my Rockwood with having a rear lounge I have to keep my awning fully extended over the rear door so that I don't scrape the awning, but I can adjust the front part of the awning for water run off. With having a low roof the doors are closer to the awning and adjustments are minimal.

Power Awning

Just bought a Wildwood 292FKDS, it has the power awning. During the walk through the technician explained that the awning should be retracted during rain storms or moderate-heavy winds. This was after my wife asked how to lower one side to allow rain run off. Not retracting during winds or rain could void the warranty. This didn't make much sense, because I thought the purpose of the awning was to shade from rain or sun. We haven't take the camper out yet (we're going this weekend) but will keep you informed.
