Power Awning adjustments?

Can you adjust the awning to roll out in a slightly downward position?

My Carefree of Colorado is not manually adjustable.

I have friends with Dometic that are adjustable.

My Carefree awning on my 2016 Greyhawk can be adjusted to raise and lower tilt. Your manual describes how to do it. If I remember right, there are 5 tilt adjustments.

Depends on the model I guess.

Our Carefree is adjustable. There is a push tab on either arm with several holes for setting. I find it easier to adjust when retracted; actually I can only do it when retracted, but Carefree says you can do it extended too. Push in the button and slide the inner frame arm up or down to the desired position. You can also set an angle side to side, but don't put a difference of more than 3 positions (holes).


We didn't have any instructions with our TT when purchased, but the instructions were pretty easy to find on the Carefree site. And this is on a TT, not Class C, but they look to operate fairly similarly.

Sounds like your's is fairly flat, Mine is a fixed angle model as well and has no provision to change the tilt or drop one end. It is supposed to auto dump the rain water but I don't trust it and roll it up when it rains. I wish mine was a bit steeper pitch as well for more shade as it sits almost flat.

Thanks everyone, wouldn't it be nice if the manuals were not so generic...FYI my Redhawk 2016 26XD came with the Carefree "Travel'r power awning and is adjustable, but needs to be on the "same" position on both sides to retract correctly.

Nighthawk65, the awning on my Seneca retracts OK with one side lower than the other. The manual did say the positions had to be like one setting apart. i would be more specific but its in for repairs, manuals and all.

When I let the awning out just a foot or two, it will be flat. I have to let it out further before it tilts.

I was just referring to the warning the manual on line stated:
WARNING FOR AWNINGS UNDER 12': THE ARMS MUST BE SET AT AN EQUAL
PITCH. DAMAGE TO THE ARMS AND CANOPY CAN OCCUR IF THE AWNING IS RETRACTED
WITH THE ARMS UNEVEN.
