yes, your dealer was incorrect. This is not normal and the awning arms are most likely hanging up on the pivot pins due to slippage of the material as previously suggested.
Stand on a ladder and look at the roller where the fabric ends and look for a "dirt line" where the awning used to end. It might be visible on the other end.
Lift the awning roller slightly to release pressure on the slots and "flap" the material while gently tugging on it to pull the material back into position.
Run the awning in and out several times to make sure it is back to normal.
If it is, a permanent fix is to pop rivet the material so it will no longer move in a wind.
