If they are installed with the tension adjusted properly they work great. Installed the slideout/window awning combo on our 2001 Desinger MH and it was fine. The two that came factory installed on our SENECA have functioned flawlessly for the last 4 years.

Seann, what is your issue with the Carefree awning besides flapping and holding water? Did you get poor service? Is the awning of poor quality?

Thanks again for your response.

Tim without getting to much into it I dealt directly with Carefree on buying a slide out awning going through a camping world in Denver area.. They were the worst company I have ever dealt with as far as caring about the customer... then when I was camping in California the gear on the power awning failed.. I called them and they sent me to a place that had not been a carefree dealer in years... I called them back again and they said I could remove the fabric and have my dealer at home fix it all under warranty... when my dealer at home called them they said they knew nothing about me and never talked to me ever.. Lucky for my Jayco fixed it under customer good will... if you want the whole sordid story message me privately

We have slide out awnings and like them. They help keep the slides a little cooler from the sun , they keep leaves off the slide outs and they keep the slide out dry from the rain.

The ones on the SENECA are Carefree and the one I installed on the 2001 was also Carefree. (sorry for the delayed reply, just saw your post)

I just had a look at the Airwedge website. It took me a minute to understand that it goes under a slideout awning to prevent water & dirt buildup. Cool product. Do you like the awnings that you have?

Best regards,

Tim

Im happy with my awnings. My friend installed my awnings & did a great job. He owns a business that does awning installations & repairs.
Im going on my 16 year of being Cancer free. LIFE IS GOOD!!

I have them on my slides, no problem whatsoever. When I want to clean under the awning I put the front end of the trailer higher than the back and use the extended brush we got from CW and get on a step stool or ladder and wash under the awnings. When washed then get the hose and rinse it off. As far as lubing the gaskets, I bring the slides in about a foot and go inside and get on the step stool and spray the gasket from the inside then take a rag and spread the lube around, Another guy I know takes a small paint roller and makes it really wet and does the outside part of the gasket. Also the awning does keep the slides a little cooler from the sun. I really like them. They were a little expensive tho.
