I never tighten either end. I just tie them down with the slope in the torsion end because it is opposite the door.

Not necessarily true, you can permanently get a 6"-8" slope by cutting 2" off the end of the arm on the awning end you want lower.

You can throw it off either end you want, I did it on the motor end and it is not hacking/butchering anything. Ours worked fine for 4 years with one arm shortened.

Besides, cutting 2" off an arm eliminates the need for the adjustable ones in case they cannot be obtained.

I know for a fact the adjustable arms are still available. A friend of mine just got his for free. And when I got mine a little over a year ago...the kit is ONE arm only on the side opposite the electric cable. And this was direct from Dometic.
