Do you by any chance have the Lippert Solara electric awning? There are lots of frustrated people who have the same problem. It is a very poor design. I use shock cords to hold it in position. Two different lengths are attached from the hinged awning supports to small metal loops I installed on the bottom of the awning bracket. I move the shock cords from one end to the other to get the desired pitch. Still not perfect, but better than nothing.
