Electric awning

how do you "pitch" the electric awning? I see a black knob, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

pull down on 1 end and tighten the black knob.

I pitched mine 1 click on the door end and 3 clicks on the other.

The instructions for ours says only change the pitch while closed. It also says no more than three clicks between the two ends.

Note: we have no black know on ours.

Not sure, but I just grab one end or the other and pull down to where I want it and reach the black knob and tighten it, and it stays where I pulled it to.

also, make sure it is out all the way before trying this, and make sure the black knobs are loose when going out.

I've had 2 trailers with 2 different awning mechanisms. I'll bet there are even more. Pics would help along with model and year.

Best to lube those bars. Alum will stick and be hard to slide. Diff awnings have a strange ways to work. Mine has a series of 6 holes on the side of bar that is the lowest attached to rv. There is a spring loaded alum button that fills the hole, and keeps the bar in place. Push in on the button, and pull bar the direction you need. This allows the bar to slide and the button will pop into next hole.

Ok, figured it out. I was pulling down at the wrong place. Duh!

Thanks all

Also, don't forget to loosen those black knobs before you retract the awning (don't retract a tilted awning). I did this last weekend, and while it didn't break anything, I think it could have very easily bent something out of place, and it made quite a ruckus.
