I believe itís part of the locking mechanism to keep the slide in when retracted.

I could be wrong.....my wife says I am quite often 🤔🤔

Itís part of the anti-billow system. The other part is that little arm sticking off the roller. If the wind starts to unroll the awning that arm will rotate and catch on the ledge of the piece attached to the trailer wall, preventing it from going further and unrolling more. When you put the slide out, itís moved far enough away from the wall by the time the arm gets pointed towards the wall that it misses the ledge.

I hope that makes sense.

Hmmm -thatís where mine is as well. I thought it was in the wrong place as well but the dealer said that gives just a bit of play but stops anything significant. Plus if it were too close to the stop the roller would catch as the slide starts out.

High Noon is the sweet spot. That does not mean it will not work in other positions. It just will not be “perfect”.
