The switches for both awning & slide are about 2-3 feet off the floor next to the door. Easy reach for the little ones who like to explore. Need to find a way to hide a disconnect switch for both, unless it can be done at the converter.

I can pull down on the arm and lock it to allow drainage.

Also, the rear arm won't line up when reeled back in. Something sprung.

Still not crazy about it. I may replace it with a manual awning.

Hmmm...I don't think I can adjust my awning like in your photo, but I will have to look more closely. May be a good idea to actually read the manual!!

On the arm not lining up...I have seen some posts talking about making sure that the canvas is in the proper position before rolling it back up. The ends, which are attached to a tube that slides into a groove, tend to shift one way or the other causing the uneven situation when retracted. In the extended position, make sure the ends are centered in their original position before retracting.

I didn't realize the position of your switches. Maybe placed there so they can be reached from outside the rig? I wonder if there is some type of cover you can find? I would have the same issue with my grandkids.
