We've used ours the same way trudinator every since we got our 08 Flagstaff and have never had an issue with the side or power awning which we always have out (staked down). Made an extension hose to be able to set it on a table, but seldom use it as it just takes up room on the table and creates a tripping obstacle which us old codgers don't need. Don't like the new 5ver hook up as it is under the camper. Will eventually plumb it so it comes out the side.
