10-15 seconds is what mine takes. Twice that means something is wrong.

One more thing.two times the only way to get the awning out was to hit retract not extend.This has only happened twice I have no idea what could cause this.

IMO, all the more reason to believe the awning material is not centered on the roller and it is putting all the arms in a bind.

Take it back and get it fixed, 37 seconds is to long.

Agree, but only after seeing if the material is centered on the roller. If it is centered I would take it back. If not, I would center it and see if that cured the problem and if it didn't, then back to the dealer.

Thank you.If it is centered on the roller and nothing improves is it a matter of preference? Like no hazard with it because the dealer is two hours away and i didn't plan on taking it to the dealer until the end of next camping season for maintenence.

If it were me and centering the material didn't cure the problem, I would attempt to increase the number of turns on the torsion spring. Consult the manual for doing this as it can be a little dangerous if not done correctly. I would make the torsion spring adjustment with the awning only about a foot from the stow position to minimize the amount of torsion on the spring and make it easier to put another turn or 2 on the spring. With you stating the awning gets stuck in the stow position sometimes, I highly suspect the material is off center.
