I have only used the camper twice since we received it and have never had an electric awning before so I wasn't sure you could just reach up and pull it down. I am not nearly as sophisticated as many of you here and so I looked for a simpler method.
I thought I would split the 12 volt circuit that is for the light in the pass through and put in a female DC auto plug (cigarette lighter as we use to call them) mounted to the wall up high out of the way. Then I would Velcro the control box in the awning channel up where it plugs to the strip, then run a line down the awning channel with Velcro attachments points with a male DC plug on that end. Then I could open the pass through plug in the lights and be ready to go. Admittedly it will require unplugging the unit to role up the awning but gosh into everyone life a little rain must fall. Am I missing something with the this country boy method.
