When he arms are out they refer to that as the carport position. I would always have mine in that position unless it was windy or I was leaving the next day. You only need to run into one of the arms once to realize the carport position is much safer. The one thing I liked about the manual awning was how much easier it is to clean them. You can put the arms under the trailer and that will allow you access to the whole open awning as it hangs down from the top. The one thing I would advise is using WD 40 on the metal moving parts. I had to replace several parts due to rust. One last thing. If you find the spring loosening up over time you can actually detach one arm and keep turning it to wind the spring back up. Be very careful because the arm is under a lot of tension. Have a second person to help you so you don't get hurt.
I just bought a small electric leaf blower to help clean off our electric awning and slide out roof. I also noticed it did a pretty good job of cleaning the campsite of the debris from the trees. Who knew?

Glad you got it fixed though.
I know they come off but why bother? I'm with you on this.
