Dometic Auto-Dump feature
Guys, I'm not sure that all power awnings have the "auto-dump" feature. I do know that if you tighten the thumbscrews on the awning arms, it will not auto dump when the weight of the water on the awning should cause it to do so. I also tilt my awning away from the drive motor end to prevent water building up in the awning tube. This has caused my awning motor to die prematurely. When I replaced the motor, I was sure to use Goop sealant to waterproof the motor as much as possible. Water can easily get into the motor the way it comes from the vendor.
