Yeah a foot or more is too much.....all mine needs is about 3" back up. Puts the flap right at the very bottom of the roller tube.

He is referring to moving the top of the awning where it attatches to the 5th wheel up a foot I think that would help a lot. I wonder if they will say no because they may have to do more then one rv. I bet engineering missed the memo on how the new elecric awnings were designed. A friend of mine on his Montana has the same issue.

Even if they say no I wonder how much it would cost to do it anyways.

Mine also touches the top of the door if let all the way out. However, it can't be moved up attachment wise as it is all the way at the top now. We let ours all the way out and then just back up and take out the slack. Only a couple of inches at the most so no big deal.

How about changing the air cylinders to a slightly heavier duty? This should help raise the awning off of the door. Don't go overboard to the point of loosing the "auto dump" feature.

Mike,
Thanks for that info. Was not aware of an auto dump feature. Can you explain more?
