Poles are totally adjustable to get rain run off.

That was on a manual awning. NOT GOOD AT ALL for an electric awning without poles.

You guys are awesome. Yes mine is manual and I can totally see how it would work as a "car port". Thanks for the info I think I will try it next time I have the awning set up.

Ok I didn't realize that as trying to watch it on iPhone. I will have to try and find a pole setup for this or figure out a way to make them. I'm limited with this busted foot of what I can do. The rope thing looked like it would work for the time being.

If it were me, I would forget the rope and putting the stake directly under the awning, I would use ratchet straps and put the stake about 5' out from the awning.
