Ok fellow 368rlbh owners, quick awning question for you. On full extension my awning arms are not straight and the awning is virtually parallel to the roof with virtually no downward slope. On my previous TT the arms on my electric awning locked straight and there was a very definite downward slope to it which aided in drainage when raining. Is this correct?

What I was told about the awning is you fully extend it up to the valance is straight down so you don't over extend it and then the extension arm is straight out and then you can pull that arm down to make your awning out of level so water will drain

Did you get your link pad to fully work by putting in the password and can you take yours out and go around the camper to open up the awning and the slides and extended Jackstown I entered my code password but I still can't get it to work when it is unplugged from USB

Yes, mine will work outside the fifth wheel now I can control jacks, awning etc. The connection does drop out frequently though, I suspect the router is pretty gutless 😒. Make sure that the little wifi signal strength indicator in the bottom right corner is registering a signal before you leave the trailer. Also don't link up to your home network as I did coz it will keep ditching your trailer router for your home one as mine did. I ended up deleting my home network to avoid this. I'm gonna play around with it a little more to see if it's gonna be worthwhile but I suspect it's a bit of a gimmick at this point, I'll probably just end up going old school and using good old switches.

Btw I looked at the pics of the Salem fifth wheels in their brochures and it would seem that my awning is operating correctly, must just be a different system than I had in my TT.

Very frustrated why it will not work without the USB unplugged have to call Lci components to ask why it won't work and have them walk me though it. Live in Wisconsin and sleeping in it with the family heater is on will get down to 31 degrees tonight . Fireplace works great puts out good heat but light bulbs went out no flames got to change them

Congrats to those of you who just picked up your new units recently. We picked up our 368 rlbh last week. Did any of you notice a problem with the window shades, where they won't close all the way due to the placement of the screw stop being too high?Click image for larger version

Fifth Wheel Joy: Sorry to hear your having problems with your Linc Pad, hopefully your call to Lci will resolve your issues, keep us posted!

Cooperville: coincidentally read your post concerning your window shades earlier today. Can confirm that I definitely do not have that issue with my 368rlbh, in fact I shut all my blinds this evening when it got dark and turned my interior lights on just to check and my blinds give complete coverage. Definitely sounds like the anchoring screws for the tension lines have been installed too high....there should be a tension line running vertically down each side of each window secured to a spindle mounted on a screw, the blinds will not extend further than this screw, if this screw & spindle is above the bottom of the window then there has been an installation snafu. Its easy to correct yourself if you want to reposition them but it will leave small holes, definitely a manufacturer issue but i'm not sure the recall would be worth the hassle??

Thanks for the reply. Yeah that's the problem. Was just curious if any of you with the same model had a similar issue.
