Leave them loose unless you want one end or both pulled down . if you just leave it out and loose then it will auto dump any rain water if it rains

Awning Issues


What type RV do you have? I believe you might have the scissor type awning. I do not believe they have these knobs/nuts. So for you it would not be a problem.

LCI awnings don't have the knob. They have an articulating arm to set the pitch of the awning.

Yes, that must be mine then. Sorta wish I had the knobs, because those articulating arms don't work. Right after I pull them down to set the pitch, they straighten back out again and the awning pops right back to its original position. That's sorta why I was interested in this thread, hoping I was missing something about some knobs to tighten it up.
