Georgetown with power awning

Anyone out there have the power awning (I think it's Dometic) on their MH?

Haven't had the unit long enough to play around, but is there a simple way to tip it to the side for rain run-off? I've heard this is done with the manual awnings, but how about the power version?

We have a 2010 Georgetown 330 as well, the awning automatically tips itself when the water builds up due to the weight, then goes back up into the level position. I was told that you can loosen the one knob and tilt it like the manual awnings although I have never tired to do this, I have always let it dump on its own... just make sure you're not close to the edge when it dumps... makes for a quick unexpected shower...learned the hard way, lol

Hey Georgetown.......

Thanks for the reply. I thought I had heard that the awning does an auto tip on it's own, but I wasn't sure I had heard it right, so there shouldn't be anything I have to adjust. I'm guessing it tips to the front because it overhangs the bedroom slideout to the rear.

Quick other questions.........

We're up near Lindsay........how about you?

Bought our rig down at Outdoor Travel.........and you?

Anyone have trouble with their awning retracting? Mine is very slow to retract. It comes in pretty quick until it's about three or four feet out, then slows to a crawl. I'm worried that some day it just won't come in at all. Anyone have experience troubleshooting these things?

Power Awning

I have had both my awnings out during winter rains here in California and they both just shed water without me paying any attention. Never thought about it and the water was gone when I rolled them up.

My awning retracts at a constant speed through out the process. I think you better get it checked before you find yourself stuck somewhere. At least talk to the Dometic people at the factory.

Our power awning dumps itself, usually towards the rear. We were camping last summer with some other family members. My sister-in-law was sitting near the rear of the awning during a sudden down pour. I no sooner suggested she move toward the center and it dumped right where she was sitting. She was glad for the heads up. Ours goes all the way in at a constant speed.
