Awning again outside shower

So for those of you with the electric awnings. Who's bangs then releases when extending out. Does anyone know away to stop it. Is it hurting the awning. Second good water pressure to camper. Outside shower not working great not sure why any thoughts.

The shower probably has some junk in the head blocking the flow. Take it apart and blow it out. I have a manual awning so no help there. Just be sure your travel clamps are unclipped

It sound like there is a spot(s) in the awnings travel where it's hard to get past, and then the power overcomes it. See if you can find that spot. I use dry lube on my awning tracks and pivot points and it the works real smooth.

As far as the shower goes, I would look for kinks first, and then take it apart at the connections and look for an obstruction. (... could be as simple as a seal that not seated properly.) Also, check the shower head for obstruction. Good luck.

My awning goes out okay, but the motor seems to lug at certain points when it's coming in. I'm going to lube the tracks to see if that helps, but I think it's also the way it rolls as it seems to go up as it starts in/out.

Our's does. It takes a sec for the hyd springs to push the arms out once the fabric starts to unwind. We have a Carefree, I know they are also using Dometic.

We dry lube our awning every trip out as well. As On The GO stated, dry lube basically every thing that moves. The awning tracks that are mounted to the side of the camper are especially important. We have the Carefree electric.

My outside shower sucked. Just for giggles I took off the inside shower head and installed outside. Much better! Went to the dealer to purchase a second indoor shower head, was told they no longer make them!

As for the awning, I was told to dry lube all the moving parts as well. Had one issue once, not since.

On every RV we've had in the last 10 years with elect awning they are never adjusted correctly by dealer or factory.
If your awning sticks straight out, as in flat when extended, it needs to be adjusted down so that it has a nice slope to it. I leave one end with a little less slope for the rain to run off better. Its called dippin....I strap the outside corners down to the picnic table or trees to keep from blowing up. I also keep 5 gallon buckets to fill with water as anchor if necessary.

I have a Dometic and have the same problem. It sticks when I initially put it out.
