alliance RV Avenue 2021 Adjusting the Awning Pitch User Manual
Adjusting the Awning Pitch
- The Longitude arms have 6 pitch adjustment settings. The awning can be extended and retracted in any of these positions without having to reset the pitch between uses.
- See the NOTES about unequal pitch settings.
- Choose the side of the awning for optimum shade or convenient water runoff.
- Grasp the awning arm in the area shown and gently pull toward the vehicle to reduce pressure on the pins.
- Fully depress both pitch adjustment pins located on the scissor arm. There is one on each side of the arm; these must be fully pressed in at the same time.
Tip: LIGHTLY pulling the arm toward the vehicle will decrease the force required to press the pitch adjustment pins.
- Slide the arm to the desired set hole – towards the coach for a lower pitch and away from the coach for a higher pitch.
NOTE: Unequal Pitch Settings
- Do not set the individual arm pitch at more than three (3) positions different between the left and right arm. Damage to the arms and canopy can occur if the awning is retracted when the arms are set at more than 3 positions difference.
- For awnings under 12 feet: the arms must be set at an equal pitch. Damage to the arms and canopy can occur if the awning is retracted with the arms uneven.
During incidents of high wind, heavy rain, or extended time away from the RV, be sure to retract the awning completely to prevent damage to the awning and the RV. USE care when adjusting the pitch as the awning may move abruptly.
If the power to the vehicle is not available, the awning can be safely retracted by jumping the motor using a 10V-14V power source such as a cordless drill battery or car battery.
- Remove the front cover. To remove, press on both sides of the rear cover until the front cover releases then lift the front cover off.
- Detach the RED and BLACK wires from the cable to the motor.
- Attach jumper wires to the motor wires.
- Connect the other ends of the jumper leads to a 10-14V source. If the awning moves in the wrong direction, reverse the leads. Maintain contact throughout the retraction process.
- When the awning is closed, remove the jumper wires, and attach the cable and motor wires. Be sure to match the wire colors.
- Snap the front cover onto the rear cover. Hang the cover on the top and swing down until it clicks.
DO not use oil-based cleaners or any caustic, granulated, or abrasive type cleaners on your Carefree product.
- One of the best ways to keep the fabric looking good and to delay the need for deep or vigorous cleanings is to hose fabrics off on a monthly basis with clear water. This practice helps prevent dirt from becoming deeply embedded in the fabric. In most environments, a thorough cleaning will be needed every 2 to 3 years.
- When it is time for a thorough cleaning, the fabric can be cleaned while still on the awning frame.
- Use a soft brush and warm water with soap.
- When cleaning the fabric, it is important to observe the following:
- Always use a natural soap, and never detergent.
- Water should be cold to lukewarm, never more than 100 Degrees Fahrenheit.
- Air-dry only. Never apply heat to the fabric.
- Always allow the fabric to dry thoroughly before rolling up the awning.
Alliance RV has prepped their Avenue 5th wheels with a slide topper prep kit to allow for easy installation of a Carefree of Colorado Slide-out Topper. For assistance with parts and or questions regarding the slide-out topper prep kits, please contact your Alliance Dealer or Alliance RV.
Alliance RV’s main living quarters (downstairs) will utilize a “direct cool” Coleman air conditioner. These units are mounted on the exterior roof of the RV with a combination shroud mounted on the inside ceiling of the RV. We have opted for most of the RV to be cooled with this direct cool unit as it is significantly more efficient than your typical ducted system. The front/upper deck of the RV will utilize a ducted Coleman air conditioner system. Due to the nature of the design in the front/upper deck containing multiple rooms and areas that can be isolated with doors, a ducted system is utilized. Each air conditioner will be operated by its own individual thermostat.
Avenue will be heated with an SF-Q series Suburban furnace that provides 35,000 BTUs. An exterior access door allows for ease of service. The furnace is operated with the Aircel thermostat that is tied to the main air conditioner unit. The main air conditioner unit is the control that operates the central air conditioner in the RV.
Operating the Furnace
DO NOT OPERATE THE FURNACE WHILE THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION OR BEING TOWED
During the initial firing of this furnace, a burn-off of excess paint and oils remaining from the manufacturing process may cause “smoking” for 5 – 10 minutes.
- Stop! Read the furnace user’s manual supplied with the furnace.
- Turn the manual valve (if equipped) or the valve at the outside propane tank to the “OFF” position. Do not force
- Set the thermostat above room temperature to begin the blower operation. A slight delay will occur before the blower comes on. Allow blower to run for 5 minutes for the combustion chamber purge cycle. If the blower does not come on or stops before the ignition cycle, go to shut down and contact your dealer.
- After 5 minutes, move the thermostat lever below room temperature. The blower will remain on. Wait approximately 2 minutes for blower to go off.
- An open manual shut-off valve (if equipped) or the valve at the outside propane tank. Correct operating characteristics depend on the valve being positioned fully open. Never attempt to operate with a valve partially closed. NOTE: This furnace is equipped with a valve shut-off switch. If the furnace is started with shut-off switch in “OFF” position, the furnace motor will run for 30 seconds, then shut off. During this sequence, no gas will flow to the burner and the furnace will lock out requiring the user to cycle either the thermostat or unit power to reset the furnace. Ensure the shut-off switch is in the “ON” position for proper operation.
- Set the thermostat to the desired setting. If set above room temperature, the blower will come on.
- Allow 30 seconds for the main burner to light after the blower comes on. This furnace is equipped with an ignition device that automatically lights the burner. Do Not try to light the burner by hand.
- If the burner does not light, repeat steps 1 thru 8.
- If after three 3 attempts with no ignition, go to shut down and contact your dealer. Do not continue to cycle the furnace. NOTE: If the furnace locks out, the blower will go off in 5 minutes and remain off until it is reset by reactivating the thermostat.
Operating the Furnace
To Turn the Furnace Off
- Set the thermostat to the lowest setting, then turn the thermostat to the “OFF” position.
- Turn the manual shut-off valve (if equipped) to the “OFF” position.
The display indicates the mode and the room temperature. When the mode button is pressed once, the thermostat will wake. When the mode button is pressed again, the mode will change. Press the up or down button to wake the thermostat, the set temperature will display, and the mode will flash. Press the up or down button again to change the set temperature. The thermostat will go back to sleep after 5 seconds of no activity.
There is a three-minute anti-short cycle for cooling. After the cooling system has been de-energized, the system will not energize again for three minutes, this is to protect the compressor on the ac unit. You can bypass the anti-short cycle function by changing the mode to off.
Operating your cooling system when the outdoor temperature is below 50 degrees Fahrenheit can cause damage to your cooling equipment.
Hold the mode button down for 5 seconds to change from Fahrenheit to Celsius.
