Mine has the holes. Which you can offset for rain it also says in my manual that it has a automatic rain dump feature as long as you don't have it tilted too much.
I would refer to your manual.
I know for the year a model my camper is I wouldn't put added supports. Also the manufacture should have made a good product to begin with so why add extra stuff if not needed. Obviously in heavy rains and high winds roll it up.
That's my opinion

My 2012 is the same way. When I did my walkthrough, the tech said the awning pitch wasn't adjustable. I asked him what the holes on the awning arms were for [already knowing] and he said "I'll be darned, first Carefree I've seen that's adjustable". So I think pre 2012 most weren't.

well mine is tiltable with the knobs to tighten but I have had great luck leaving them loose and letting it work its magic. medium winds it blows upward , rain it drops down in the middle and dumps the only time I reel it in is if the winds are real strong
