My 365 has the electric awning and it's 21' long. Since I will have this unit seasonal I leave the awning extended for the summer. I ordered and am having the dealer install the center leg support and dafter to keep the awning taunt. The part installed was quoted at $175
I wanted to ask if anyone has had this installed and their experiences. I have read issues with the awnings rolling up with wrinkles and the awning roll bad bowing over time and I wanted to avoid that from happening. I also assume the support brackets will have the support for when the awning is rolled up.
I appreciate any thoughts from the members. Once I have installed I will get back w pics.
I had an A&E awning and it was 20' long. I called A&E because I was having some problems with my awning, the first thing they ask me was did I have a center support and I said no, my rig came from the factory with out one.
Well they told me that an awning 20' or long should came with a center support so I question the dealer about it, why was it not order with one and the dealer told the rigs are ordered that because of cost, now can you believe that?
I did have one installed and it was on me.
May I suggest not to leave your awning open while you are away you will be sorry. You are looking at about 1,200 bucks to have it replaced if the wind or heavy rain gets a hold of it and it cause more damage to other parts of your camper.
As far as a saggy awning, from time to time your awning has to be adjusted and I recommend taking it to the dealer for this, if you don't know what you are doing you can get hurt and the same go's for slid out toppers.
