RV Awning Maintenance and Accessories by RV Education 101® - YouTube
In every view the "Fully Extended" awning is on the top of the roller and not the side facing the camper. Interpretation of WHAT "Fully Extended" means is the issue.
My technique for "Fully Extended" is with the awning material on top of the roller when the awning is "Fully Extended." Motor "bogdown" is not "Fully Extended" in my opinion; it is "Hyper-Extended."
In addition, structurally speaking, having the material on top adds to the strength of the awning roller by giving a 1/4 wrap of material over the weakest part of the roller (middle); eliminates the gully that traps water, stretches the material, and adds weight to the awning at its weakest point (middle); and still allows full use of the accessory slot.
