Underside of the awning should be rolled up inside. Top of awning should be showing when rolled up.

Underside inside for me. This results in no where for rain to collect when the awning is rolled up.

Inside.

Here is a picture of my topper awning I found quickly.
The main awning is the same principle.

Yes.

Your question in your first post was... "so when rolling up awning should the underside of awning be on outside or inside??"

My answer is still the same... the underside of the awning should be... 'inside.'

I didn't even think it was possible to roll the awning up inside out, but evidently it is.

The more I think about it, it shouldn't be possible. Wouldn't the spring would continue to wind up, unless of course the spring is broken?

Some of these newer power awnings do not have springs. They will simply continue to roll up in the opposite direction once extended.

For those that do, (have springs) you are right, it would continue to wind the spring but they don't have near the static tension (number of winds closed) the old manual awnings have so I'm thinking the spring might not break. Probably not good for the motor and gears though when it gets that many turns on it.
