Question about the Anchors Down meet...

One of the things Aaron told me about was a "tour" of RV's? I assumed that those that want to participate will basically allow their RV's to be open to the rest of the members so they can view the insides and any modifications??

I like the idea because I'm always willing to share my mods and learn about more. After losing my awning this weekend, I'm not sure we're going to attend. My trailer was suppose to get wrapped and after 3 weeks at their shop, they couldn't produce the wrap in the colors I wanted to match my DX3. Between that and the arms ziptied up from the awning, I may pass next month. I suspect I'll have a fight on my hands about the awning with Dynamax. I hope not, this is the second time we've had issues with it and the dealer "did an adjustment" the first time but this time, it's destroyed.

We'll see...

While it might not be pretty it would be nice if you could attend. Can you just strap it together temporarily?

I could... I just hate driving my stuff when it's clearly &#$($&^'d up. Here's a pic of it now. I guess once I have the dealer remove the arms, it won't look so trashy with white zip ties all over the place...lol.

Sorry about your Awning. How bad were the winds? Ours has retracted a few times automatically in the wind. I always have it set to very sensitive. It would be a shame if you missed the Rally. The Orange Crush would still look good.

Like last time, it wasn't winds. We rolled it out and it got stuck. After a few attempts it went out but when we tried to close it, it closed about 3/4 of the way and turned into a clusterfudge.

When we first bought it, we had the same problem. It jammed going back in but we ziptied it up and took it to the dealer. They made an adjustment and all was good. That was until this weekend. It did the same thing except it folded the hell up.

Sounds like Dynamax would take care of this.

Ours was jerky & very noisy at first. I had to use spray silicon on all the nylon bushings. this resolved our issues. Good luck with the new one.

We'll see... I was warned that I should expect a fight. I hope not, this is the second time we've had problems rolling it up.

Dealer will probably go directly to carefree for warranty.
