Latest awning mod
2009 Sunseeker 2860DS. Electric Dometic awning. 9100 series.
Like many have said, the inability to lower the awning makes it useless in many sun situations. Tilting for rain so it doesn't pool up is also not possible. I decided to replace the pivot arms with adjustable arms. Many people just replace the left arm (as you face the awing) so tilting for rain is possible. I added both adjustable arms, left and right so I could adjust the pitch lower for better shade. The right arm has a wire to the motor so it's a bit more of a challenge, but not too hard.
The part number for both arms is Dometic 3312508.017B about $100. with shipping for both. Several places sell them, just Google it.
Here are some pics.
