Hope this helps (and works for you). Good hunting! I'm now winterized and parked. Guess we'll have a better idea if this works come next Spring.

I'd like to try that, too, but I'm not clear on what needs to be done to change the retraction from over to under. How'd you do it?

Just keep you finger on the switch and it will go the oppsite way automatically. Larry

Yes the plastic rain gutter did "lock" into the rain gutter on my Z.

I did not change the way the awning rolls up. It still rolls up with the rolled awning under, the section of the awning that is attached to the side of the camper.

I could keep my finger on the switch all day and it would not change. I have a manual awning.

Has anyone tried towing with their awning reverse rolled? Seems like a decent idea when parked, but not sure about towing. If the wind were to flow through the small gap would you get lift?

Soggy Awning Follow up

Hello-o-o-o Springtime!

Just took the unit out of hibernation and, in short, my mod worked...and, I might add, very well. The awning was dry after its winter nap, no new mold spots and, as a bonus no black streaks from the roof (though interestingly, had black streaks ON the mod, but since the water was directed over the trailer awning, nothing on that side of the trailer).

For those of you in those hot, dry and sunny areas (as opposed to northeastern Indiana), this also may be a good mod to prevent sun damage to your awnings. Of course, if your awning is wider than 10', you'll have to add a second length of rain gutter. I suspect those could be joined using PVC cement and or pop rivets...chewing gum, not so much.
