Would love to see pictures of this setup and how you lock the arms on an electric awning.

Obviously, we won't use it in strong winds, but we certainly would like to use it to sit outside in a light rain and keep the entrance as dry as possible. I would tilt the awning for drainage of course.


Thanks in advance.

lol. I am not sure what the heck your dealer is talking about. Are they suggesting that the awning is going to melt?
