When I tighten the knobs down it does nothing. My arms are not straight either. Not sure what is going on.

The arms on my new camper do not go straight out either as compared to my other camper I had. Don't know if they are suppose to or not. It's not far off tho. Later RJD

Remember the awning has a auto dump feature when rain water loads up on the top of the awning and gets too heavy it dumps.

It rained in PA this weekend and the awning did a great job dumping, just scared the crap out of us when it dumped the 1st time.

Do you have a picture of what the awning looks like extended. I'm not sure from the description if there is something wrong with the awning or if you're just not used to the electric awning option.

OMG, this is too funny. Exact same experience camping near Lewisburg this past weekend. The auto-dump worked but it scared the BeeJesus out of us when it did!

Good practice in general. We had ours out to cover the bikes, which we had taken out of the garage and didn't want to put back in.

Somewhere on this site someone talk about installing the tie downs improperly and that prevented the awning from dumping.

This maybe a issue with the tie downs and power awnings since the awning moves closer to the trailer while dumping.
People tend to pull the awning away from the trailer this would prevent the dump feature from working.

If your using a tie down strap on a power awning and your dumping feature fails it could be your anchoring location maybe in the wrong location.

I don't think these power awnings were designed to be tied down or opened during a wind day.
