A really Great Idea would be if the OP listed the MFG and Type/Model#,or Pic of the Awning! It would keep down the "WAGs"! Youroo!!

Sent from my iPhone 'cause I'm probably out in the RV!

I have a 2011 and mine is automatic. It is wind sensitive and will automatically drain the water.

Only once did I see it do the dump feature. We almost never have the awning extended when raining. Was kind of neat. One side of awning rolled in like it was closing. After a foot or so it stopped and a flood of water flowed over the rear end of the awning. When it stopped the end of the awning went back to its normal extended position.
That's really cool!

The A & E (Dometic) is designed to dump water, and it works well, but I still drop one end of my awning so rain runs off the end I want it to.

We have the same awning. I tossed a nylon strap over one corner and use a ground stake. Easier than breaking out the ladder to be able to tighten the knob and faster to undo if the wind picks up.

Never had a problem with auto draining on my Awnings. As long as the adjustment nut isn't cranked down.

No way would I trust the Auto Dump Sys,,,
I either strap both sides down as far as I can,,, or if I want the water to go a certain way I strap one end lower !!!

Well I have had mine for four years and traveled from Michigan to Texas and Florida and New York. We have been in storms that have chased us to the club house for shelter. The awning rolls itself up when the wind blows hard and dumps when it rains. I almost don't even worry about it. I can set the sensitivity from low to high. Very good system and very happy with it. Now if they would have just put it on the slide so it gave some shade.

X-2 to all that. Awning just to high. Auto dump and wind sensor work perfect !

The auto dump works great. I was just showing it how to make it dump off the back end instead of the front by the door.
