Pics attached I pulled from a search.
This "Teeter Totter" type I used on a 21" Manual Awning,in order to remove the "Bow" from the center of the Tube I had to "HELP" when retracting the Awning! On the Longer Power awning I wonder if the Motors have enough "Power" to overcome this Hurdle? Youroo!!

Good question. It should have the torque to wind itself in position but I don't know since I'm hanging on to my ol' trusty manual awning.

I just put new Carefree fabric on and I believe it is 19'. It had enough bow it was noticeable. We travel the east coast to Florida and as far west so far as Tennessee. The roads are bad and it seamed to be taking its toll on that tube because I never noticed bowing it until recent. I didn't actually measure the deflection but my camping buddy said his wife could see it bounce when he was following me.

Just installed a BAL hide a spare on my 26rr. Now it's out of the way. Besides having to buy self tapping screws it's a great product easy to install

Finally got some LED lights that I am happy with!
The one one the left is LED and the one on the right is incandescent.


Installed lights in the bedroom clothes closets.


Actually completed this a while back but never posted it. I replaced the white two bulb wart light on the ceiling and removed the white wart reading lamps that were in the wrong place and installed these swivel lights in the right place for reading in bed.

Where did you get your bulbs from? I'm always hesitant about LED's because of them being white instead of yellow.
