Before we got the power awning we would always pull the slide bar down real tight and then tighten the nob while we could reach it. Raising the awning was always last.

My wife wanted the power awning. I prefer the manual type.

You may want to view these YouTube videos which clearly explain the steps to follow in their correct order while opening and closing a manual awning.

They cleared up any questions I had regarding the correct processes to follow.

Onward to the next RV mystery. <:O))

Cheers!

Good find on the videos! Only difference on most Jaycos is they have a remote release/lock located in the middle of the front arm which is nice!

One thing I can tell you from seeing it - hold on really tight to the main arm when you lower the awning back down. I have a friend who let it slip and slam down. The aluminum arm is now bent and will not extend.
