Very easy connect a (Ratchet strap to the Rod attachment point of the Gas Shock and the other end of the strap to the vertical mount on the trailer! Compress the Gas Shock and that side will (Lower/Dip)! Youroo!!

Wait a second after (Maging the Pics)) I see (Ball Detents) on your arms for (Tilt)! Have you ever tried to adjust these? The shock is (Auto Dump) but will still work! Youroo!!

This awning will not auto dump...I have the same awning...and unless the auto dump feature you are referring to snaps the arm in half....I guess it will "auto dump" once...I had a mess listening to our RV salesman telling me this was an auto dump arm...it is not...only the tilt will keep the water off of this type of awning...use the spring loaded buttons on the awning to lower one side...just pay attention that you need to adjust back in order to pull the awning back in...

Looking at the (Geometry of the Support Linkage) when the (Gas Shock collapses) that side WILL Dip! Youroo!!

I have the same exact awning and I watched it dump on its own, exactly as you describe. Now, it waited a little longer than I was comfortable as there was a pretty sizable pool so usually I dump manually by gently pulling down on the arm (collapsing the gas strut.)

It is adjustable- as a previous poster stated use the ball detents.

Well, I guess you can roll the dice on if the shocks will work correctly...mine did not compress, the arm bent, and the rest is history...

On my Hemi 272RLIS I can tilt the awning, but it does not have the auto dump feature, hence no knobs in the arms. As explained during my PDI not all electric awnings automatically dump.
