Awning

Good Evening All

We been having an issue with one of our awnings, on occasions you can here it trying to go out when we've activated it but it won't. The next time you try it goes out without a hitch. Wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if anyone is aware if there's a relay for it?

We've had that happen a few times. In our case one of the arms seem to be slightly hung up preventing the awning from going out. Just have to push a little on the arm and it will go out. Not doing it lately.

I periodically lube all joints & take covers off both ends & lube the motors & the opposite idler end with silicone spray.

Is it best to angle the awning down in the front or rear for rain drainage?

We have a 36RL with dual awnings. I have them both raised 2 notches on the ends nearest our entry door. I want the water to not go near the entry door. That way the awning in the front drains to the front, and the rear awning drains near the rear.

Chris you can adjust the awing pitch by the adjusting pin on each arm. Push the pin in and move the arm up and you can cause the pitch to be more towards the front of the awing or back which every you like. Not suggested that you go more than 2-3 holes from arm to arm could cause a problem if you roll it in that way twist arm and damage the frame.

RWJSIM2003, I already do that. I was aware that Carefree suggests no more than 2 or 3 holes difference between ends or you will end up having trouble rolling them up. I have both awnings higher over the entry door to keep water from pooling and splashing near the door area.

I had this happen on main awning...loose wire in motor casing. Sometimes worked sometimes not...until one day just went out. Mechanic did a easy fix...hardest part was getting the casing off with the awning closed. Works like a charm now.
