Same problem with both awnings on our unit too. I have tried numerous lubes to no avail. I noticed the small wheels on the lower arm do not turn but just drag along the inside of the rail causing the noise. I am also interested to hear what the fix is as it is VERY annoying!

Got an email from Carefree today and supposedly the problem is caused by the gas struts which have been "redesigned". I have asked them to send me new ones so I can replace them myself but have not heard back yet. Will keep ya'll up to date...

Mine work fine no noise but a little jumpy when closing. So far trip is good. Six weeks at camp and just a few small things. Two water leaks, easy fix. My generator tripped one of its 30 amp breakers and I lost 110 to half the camper. Reset all the gfi breakers with no luck and figured major problem. Hooked up my Honda Jenny and all good so I new it had to be the house Jenny. Kitchen fantastic fan will not shut off when open and heater flame goes from yellow to nice blue flame randomly. So far I am very happy

Check how they have the 20amp and 30amp breaker on the genny hooked up. Mine did that and they had one of the wires to the breaker hooked up backwards. Swapped that and no issue.

My awnings are terribly loud. It's def. the struts and the force against the camper

Not sure if they changed anything for 2017 as far as awnings go, but mine is quiet going in and out. Seems to be holding up very well to wind/rain so now we leave it out during the week when we are not there. Do have a web cam so I can monitor from my phone. Had a couple storms roll by yesterday when we weren't there and it handled it well.

My FW Onan Jenney has two 30 amp breakers that is how I figured out when I hooked my Honda to shore power cord it was the Jenney. Doing some amp draw testing the fireplace and all kitchen slide power plugs along with the built in charger are all on the same circuit. I have no electric service at camp so the charger puts out max amps when genny is on for power. Moved coffee pot to island which is different power and solved problem

Pics of camp and awning tie down poles. Leave awning out angled all the time with no worries

The new struts have 85 lbs. of pressure and the originals have 150 lbs. of pressure. That should make a difference. I contacted Carefree with my ser.#'s of the awnings and they are send me new sets of struts for both awnings. Haven't got them on yet as we are away camping!
