New 5th wheeler

Hi,
Been motor homing for years. Just purchased our new (to us) 2012 Cedar Creek Silverback 29RE
Wow, is it ever spacious! Lots to learn. Especially about making it rigid.
Never had an electric awning either. Any advice on how to make it tilt lower for more shade?
Hopefully, I'll be able to contribute to the forum as I get more experience,

Hello and welcome from Arkansas.
If the awning is regular. You just pull it down and tighten the black knob. I am sure with that model someone will chime in with the correct answer.

Enjoy.

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your 5er Yes you can lower the awing by pulling down and tightening the black nob to hold it there. You may get some interference when opening the door if to low. Later RJD

Thanks. Had the 5er dropped off. got to stay in it during a few nights of continuing set up. IE transferring stuff into it. Now we are back in Connecticut. Well, leaf peeping is pretty awesome in this neck of the woods,
