I've only used my power cord reel a few times, but it seemed to work at designed.
I always help guide/feed the cord on anyway. You have a good turkey too.

Help with my tv. Hooked up park cable tv to cable hookup outside bedroom tv will auto scan and give me all the park cable channels but main tv will not. Tried moving cable to sat/aux connector in cabinet and no cable. Why is it working in bedroom and not main tv

Got the tv fixed. Looked with a flashlight behind tv and found the splitter. I could get my hand down between tv and counter top and two connectors were barely connected. That is another rat nest of wires back there

Rock,
Our cord reel motor appears weak as well and we must guide/assist cord during rewind, but be careful not to get a finger in there... Very unforgiving ... Ha

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!
Wishing everyone a relaxing, joyful and plentiful Thanksgiving.

Glad to hear you found it. I haven't had to venture into that area yet, but it does look like a rat's nest down in there.

Rock,
You just had to rub that "gulf view" thing in, didn't you?

My cord reel seams to work ok. However, I have nothing to compare it to and, if I hold on tight enough, I can stall it. I too, guide it back and forth as it is loading. But, as I am doing that, I usually have a damp rag in my hand that wipes it off as it loads. That way, the dirt and other trash is kept to a minimum in that compartment.

Our power cord reel works fine, except we do have to guide the cord as it's retracted.

Ok power reals work with different rewind strength. If I do not guide and kind of walk it in it stops and will not pull the cord at all if u just use button. Like the idea of wet rag my hand was black.
Another question on the awnings. I have no info on mine and I think dalengail mentioned u could tilt it down two holes and still rewind it. Did anyone get info on the awning? First trip went great just got home and will post on the first adventure later

Rock,
I received same info as DalenGail, but I believe we also did our pdi at the same dealer. I like the idea of changing the angle in the event of rain, but I also believe it best to re-align prior to rewinding if situation allows...

In a slightly different note, So far I'm very impressed with the pop out toppers ... We were in some pretty severe wind storms... 75mph+ with no issues except for a lot of noise... I got worried and retracted our slides for the night to preserve toppers and to reduce noise for a better night sleep...
I'm still a rookie and felt it prudent to preserve the rig, others at the camp sight appeared to keep them out... At least the few with pop out toppers ...
It's great to see you had a good first trip ... Wishing you the very best in all your future endeavors !
