Awning Positions?

Have a NEW Redwood 3901MB with two awnings. Question....should I be able to change the pitch of the awnings? They go out completely flat and was wondering if they are adjustable to angle down a bit? I'm a "Newbe" to RV'ing! Thanks for any replies.

Yes you can change the pitch. I have the exact Redwood and have already changed the pitch. If you look at the main arms coming from the side of your camper you will see a small spring loaded pin that protrudes through the sides both main arms. You can push this pin inward toward the center of the arms until it clears the outside casing and then slide the outer arm either up or down depending on which way you want the pitch to go. It has hardly any pressure on the arms when you push the pins inward. Just make sure there is not a lot of wind blowing at the time you do this so that you can control the awning whether you want to slide it up or down.

Thanks...I saw those buttons there but thought there should be one on both sides of the rail to work? Just tried one and it slides smoothly....They are set to be straight out now, is there a "Favorite" setting you use?

I have been using the second down from the top. I guess it would be a matter of preference. I do know that it doesn't take a lot of wind to raise my canopy up now that I have tilted it downward. It may be just me but I now anchor it with a bungee on both ends with a little tension to help keep it down so it doesn't raise or lower with the wind.

Mine are set at the most pitch possible with the center arms of both awnings 1 notch up so the water runs away from door. You can set however you prefer as long as there is not more than 3 holes difference between front/rear arms & still roll up normally. You DO NOT have the change pitch settings to roll them up, set them as you like & leave them.

You can offset the pitch so one side is further down than the other side, but I believe the manual said only by a couple of increments or it won't roll up even.
