Don't know why I am concerned really, because we never leave ours out if we are away or if it is raining. Sometimes, I will extend it partially to give a little cover to get out the door when it is raining, but not often. Found out the hard way that if you roll it when it is raining and you are standing in the doorway, you will get an instant bath.
Other than that, we have had real good luck with ours.
Leeman, that sounds like a nice awning than the one that came stock on our 5th wheel. Is it too made by Carefree? I's like to have one like that.

I too extend the awning about 3 or 4 ft when it is raining at times. Makes for a nice walkway down the side of the camper protected from rain. I have also had one of those quick showers standing in the doorway.

Cleaning the top is a problem
Hanging awning lights is a problem
Not able to tilt one side is a problem (to me)

Not sure what make electric awning you guys have but the Carefree Of Colorado awning on my GreyHawk can be adjusted to go lower or tilt to drain the rain off....

Mine goes straight out. It has a dump feature if it fills with water, but I can not set one side up higher than the other. BTW mine is a Carefree of Colorado, maybe I am missing something here.

Nope... you're not. The 2010 G2 29bhs came with the same one you have. Straight out with a dump feature and no tilt ability.

Hey Glazier,

Check with Carefree of Colorado for a different set of arms that will convert it to an angled awning. I have a 31RKS G2 and it's got the angled awning.

Regards, Hamshog

If ya find that Carefree does come up with a set of arms to convert the flat pitch to adjustable, please post the info. I'm hoping that they will at some point......
