Some of you may remember my saga that I have been dealing with the Awning on my Rockwood 2514G, so I will keep the back story short. Basic gist is that the original Dometic was a piece of garbage, and when it broke the second time we wanted to replace it with a better unit. We settled on the Carefree of Colorado, because we had one on our old camper, and we were very happy with it.
Straight out of the box, the new one came with a bad seam in it and had to be returned before it was even used or fully set up. Now I finally get the replacement for the replacement of the replacement installed. See the attached pictures.
With the poles fully extended, the highest I can get the awning is about 5' 8", which is way too low for a family of people over 6' tall. I realize I can stand the legs on the ground, but the whole point was keeping the legs off the ground so the dogs would not get wrapped up in them. I have also found that carport style to be more effective in securing it for wind as well.
My question is, is this normal? It seems to be pulling the roof over quite a bit as well. Did I do something wrong? Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thing of just going without at this point......
