28DBUD Awning

When I try to adjust the pitch of the awning on my trailer by pulling down on the arms, the forward arm will stay down as I'd like, but aft end always springs back up. It works like this regardless of the position of the forward arm. Am I missing something, maybe and adjustment or something?

I tried that too. Maybe it's just how it is. Thanks.

Just bought my camper last week, and it does the same thing. I was reading in the manual, and it mentions a feature where it will automatically dump rain water to one side. I wonder if that is how it dumps the water?

I'm thinking that's correct. One side stiff, and the other can drop down with ease when it gets heavy to drain.

I think when I first read about it, I was under the impression that you could set one side or the other lower to make to water drain to the chosen low side. Also, I thought I could lower the overall pitch of the awning to block the sun at a lower angle.

Never did score too high on reading comp.

Pull the side down and tighten the black knob. You can also make or buy a set of awning poles and then you can leave both sides loose and adjust either end to be lower and not have to worry about the auto dump which seldom works anyway. PM me for awning pole attaching kit details.

No black knob on this one. Just pull down on that lowest support arm. It bends at the elbow, and in theory should stay in place. However, it springs back out again.



Maybe I need one of the those screw into the ground dog tethers and tie off some rope between that and elbow to keep it where I'd like it.
