Awning adjustment for rain

I have a 390QS and would like to know if there's any way to adjust one side of the awning down to drain water run off in the rain.

A set of awning poles from Turbs or if you have the adjustment knobs on the arms, just pull the awning down and lock it in place.

There is an adjustment on the arms of the Carefree awning for the Berkshire. Mine was running off the front a couple weeks ago and I justed the arm so it run off the backside. I will attach a couple of pictures to show you.

If you have an A&E, Dometic, Awning, there are knobs on each lower arms that you can loosen and pull down the end of the awning to allow rain to drain off. This feature is also great for cleaning the awning.

IF it works. Not really a dependable system.

You want to lower just one side (away from door) so the rain runs off there.

The awning on our 2012 Berk has an auto dump feature plus the ability to tilt it with the buttons on the lower arm.

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.
