[QUOTE=dunnnc;261370]On the 5er, I can adjust the arms to be straight[QUOTE]

Just for clarity.
I just wouldn't want someone tightening their adjustable awning arms, forgetting about it, and damaging their awning. It could happen far too easily.
I think we can put this discussion to rest.

This is a valid point, but I am not sure if the drag on the motor is a problem or not. It does flop around a bit in a wind. Hopefully when I install the awning "legs" mod I will never have to worry about this again.
