32 days past my 2 year "ownership anniversary". I'm hoping Jayco will acknowledge that this is not an isolated issue and provide some assistance...

Also, this awning is a fixed pitch. I have not had any problems opening and closing it for two years.

Jayco came thru (once again)! Now I need to find a reputable dealer on the east coast to get this fixed...

I got a first look at the one I put the down payment on, and the paperwork says it has a Dometic power awning. This is a 2013 x213.

From my cursory research on the Carefree awnings, it seems to be a common issue (frozen piston and bent support arms). Dometic could have received the bid for the new model year(s) and that is another reason for switching. I have always noticed Carefree products on lots of high-end units. Glad the resolution to my issue is being resolved... Good luck with your new rig...
