Bulldogs, I just noticed the same thing on our awning yesterday. Now I just have to adjust it and slide in the sun screen and we will be set.

Here is what our 16' Patty O Shade Sunblocker looks like on our 20' flat pitched electric awning. No need to remove when retracting the awning; it rolls up right inside the awning. I don't know that part number, but we picked ours up at a Camping World in Sep '09.

Darn things wont always retract Healthi... Wind was coming up here .. went out to retract it the motor spun but the awning did not move... took 5 of us to push the awing back to the retracted position but of course the fabric was still out... then , as luck would have it found a little bit of space between the awning arms and the RV to get some zip ties through to keep the arms in place... the fabric is now torn... Carefree says they will cover it... BUT what a hassle loading up everything to head in for service work... from my SoCal snowbird spot...
When I phoned the factory they listed a whole pile of things that could go wrong with the electric awning trying to trouble shoot what was wrong with mine

That would sooooo suck Seann! I hope ours never fails like that when we need it most.

Here's something we did see.... a gust of breeze blow through our neighbors campsite and the non-motor end of the flat pitched elec awning flew up and over onto the roof. Motorized end stayed straight out; the awning simply twisted. The climbed up the back ladder to the roof and pushed the back end of the awning back out. They were lucky as the awning retracted and extended with no apparent damage.

bbhoth, I just ordered a 10' Sunblocker for our 13' awning from RV Direct.
Lowest price I could find ($93.92 + 15.75 shipping). Their part number is 5181085. Ships via UPS and should be here before our first camping trip.

I hope you can find a 20' for a decent price.

Today I adjusted the height of our awning. It is easy if the awning is rolled up. Simply push the lock button and slide the arm up. As menioned already there are 6 detent holes and when the awning is up flat it is in the bottom mark. I moved ours up two and it is a lot better. Tomorow I plan to move it one more space and slide in the sun screen. The screen is the only thing we kept from our Montana and we never had an oppertunity to use it so it will get broke in tomorow.

I am sure glad I found this site. Without it I would have never learned about how to adjust the awning and would not have known that it is ok to leave the sun screen on. Member ship was worth every penny-----wait it was totally FREE.

This isn't the best picture, but was taken on an earlier trip in our 32BHDS. Just a quick overnighter in a new (at the time) rig - camp looks pretty bare

I have had TTs with both the manual and eletric awnings, and I love this electric one.

Hanging lights is no problem. I use the "T" shaped tabs - the top of the "T" is a little peice of plastic that slides into the roller of the awning. The vertical peice is a little velco strap. When you take the lights off you just roll the straps right up - very easy. And can still be rolled up very easy in a storm.

Another nice part of the electric is not having to walk around the arms - probably my favorite part.

Mine has more of a slant to it than some of the others I have seen. I put it all the way out and retract the "roller" about 1/4 or 1/2 rotation to keep it taunt, and the water rolls right off.

All in all a very good awning.

Hey since Carefree wants crazy money for the upgraded arms that are adjustable, what about drilling your own holes and using removable pins to make your own adjustments.

Will one of you with the 2011 awning measure the distance of the six holes on the arm, and post some pictures, I would be willing to test this out and post my results.
