Your welcome. I tend to look at things from a different view sometimes. The awning functionality is really a marvel of engineering. You only need to go back several years to the days of manual deployment, or always having to dodge the support arms on electric ones to understand my point.

Sometimes it truely amazes me on how products are improved for us consumers to enjoy. Then again, some say you didn't build that. I say, by gosh, i'm glad you did. Just sayin'

Oh I get it. Sometimes I read too much into things and go a different direction that what was originally posted/asked. But this group has been wonderful the short time I have been here...

I have a 2014 Wildcat Maxx. I had the same problem from the day I purchased this unit, until one day it popped and the tension strut had blown a seal. I ordered one from Dometic and was able to replace the strut. It now works smooth and never pops.

Awning Popping

Mine does the same thing and then sometimes it will roll out 3-4 feet and then pop up with a loud bang. That can't be good. I always try to remember to run it out @ one foot and then reach up and push the awning roll up. It will pop up but only and inch or so, with very little noise, and then I can roll it all the way out with no further problem. Obviously this will only work if the awning switch is just inside the front door.

Some of us have modded our awning to be remote controlled.

I have the same thing on my 2015 Roo 23IKSS. It is in the dealer right now for a bunch of warranty issues. That is on the list. I will post about their repair or their excuse when I pick it up soon.

Awning Popping

Ours has done it since new 2012, dometic, as well as my in-laws and theirs is probably 8 years old. It bothered me at first but learned to live with it. To many screws to put back in everything pulling it down Michigan's wonderful roads to worry about the popping sound from the awning.
