Mine is also 20' and it doesn't do that. Can you try to roll it the opposited way, in ours, when I keep the switch pressed to open the awning it comes back different when it reach the end. (Keeping the button pressed)
Maybe others know how to explain that better, lol
My camper is 5 months old and we are still figuring it out!

loose awning

Mine to my 20 ' dometic electric awning is downright loose and sloppy as i walk around the campground i see a lot of other dometic awnings with very tight awnings. Due to winds i am not able to check the awning but will when i get home next week

Mine does not as well, stop switch, it is only 16 feet and rolls tight.

Is that awning extra heavy?

Well, I guess mine is damaged. Lol!
When I open the awning and it has reached all the way, it keeps on rolling but then it goes backwards until it reaches the camper again. In other words, it keeps rolling and closes the awning backwards, and it looks all wrinkled.

(It doesn't stop at one end, only when it's back/closed to the camper)

The awning on ours is an LCI Solera and it doesn't stop, according to the manual it is normal operation. HC
