HERITAGE GLEN 368RLBHK awning adjustment question

Is there any type of adjustment for the awning on a 2016 Heritage Glen 368RLBK. It is an electric awning. I would like it to angle down a little. It just goes straight out, the rain puddles up on it and runs off the middle of the sides. A little drop would help alot.

Thanks,
Ray

If your awning is like mine, just grab the lower awning arm and pull down. This will lower your awning. I think mine has a sticker on the arm that states pull here. Mine is in storage now or else I would check it for you.

I have the same or similar awning, but when I pull down on the lower arms, the gas shocks push the awning right back up. I tried tightening the bolts at the joints at the bottoms to see if they would provide some resistance, but they were already as tight as possible. Any ideas?

Thanks Bob and Jeff,
You are exactly right. All I had to do is pull at the elbows and it will adjust some. The wind and the shocks does push it back up some but it is adjustable and it is labeled. I would be dangerous if I would read. Ha Ha. Attached is a picture I taken.

Thanks again,
Ray

Yes, everybody is correct on pulling the arm down, but you have to tighten down the arms with the black knob, otherwise it's just going to go back up. Make sure the knob is loose before you adjust the arm. Very simple, but you have to really tighten down that knob.
