Crooked Awning

I searched earlier but didn't see pictures of what I am experiencing.

Have you seen an awning do this? Looks like it is being puled too tight on one side or not tight enough on the other. Brand new rig, didn't notice this until tonight before putting it away.
Thanks!

Do you have adjustable arms on it??

Looks like one may be adjusted shorter than the other - check for the knobs to tighten each arm...

Yup. You need to adjust the arms. The one on the far left is WAY out there.

thanks, I'll check it out! I thought I looks for adjustments and I only saw the knobs to tighten it down, but I'll go out and look again.

May be bound on one side or the shock arm may be too weak to hold it up.

Looks like the other 3 are in a lowered position.

In my pdi the dealer said the knobs have to stay loose. (If you need to tilt a side, pull it down and tighten the knob) It appears the only loose one is the one you have that is way up on the rear. Thoughts? Loose or tight?

Looks like it might be over extended a quarter or half a roll. Could be pulling loose from the first seam. If not its in the arms adjustments as others stated.

Knobs should remain loose untill deployment, then they should be locked down untill you retract awning for storage.

He was half right. Loose until it's extended. Then you want to make your slope and tighten em up. If you don't they'll just flop around with every little gust.
