Tilt awnings?

So we moved up from manual awnings to the automatic ones on the fr3. Is there any way to/need to Drop one side for rain runoff. Thx

I've heard you can't, but I don't know the tricks like some here on the forum may know.

I don't know if you have the same type as I do, but there might be a twist knob on the lower horizontal arm from the ends of the awning to the camper about 1/2 way from the awning... loosen the knob then push down and in toward camper on that end of the awning... it should slide on that adjustment spot, then turn the knob to lock it down
hope that gets it
