Awnings (if so equipped)

Warning

  • Awnings must be closed (and secured) while the RV is in transit.
  • Keep clear of arm assemblies while opening, adjusting or closing the awning. Failure to obey this caution could result in injury and/or property damage.
  • Always operate the awning according to the instructions.
  • Periodically check that the fasteners are tight (tighten if necessary).
  • Keep the awning fabric and arms clean.

Caution
The effects of wind and rain on an awning are unpredictable and can cause severe damage to the awning and/or the recreation vehicle.

Retract the awning:

  • If wind or extended periods of rain are expected
  • If you leave the RV unattended for a length of time, to avoid unexpected climate conditions.

Awning Care
Keep your awnings clean and in good condition to prevent costly repairs.

  • Keep the awning fabric clean. For detailed cleaning information, refer to the manufacturer’s owner information.
  • Do not use insecticides or other sprays near the awning fabric. These can cause stains, and could adversely affect the fabric’s ability to repel water.
  • Do not expose the awning to adverse environmental conditions, corrosive agents, or other harmful conditions.
  • Do not allow the corner of the entry door to contact the awning fabric. Otherwise, premature wear or tearing of the awning fabric could occur.
  • Never close the awning (for storage) when wet. The combination of moisture and dirt could result in mildew, discoloration, and stains. If it is necessary to roll up the awning (temporarily) while it is wet, make sure you roll it out and let it dry (as soon as conditions allow) before rolling it up again.
  • Do not allow dirt, leaves, or other debris to accumulate on the awning, which could cause abrasion and stains. Mildew could grow on dirt and organic debris, causing permanent discoloration, stains, and odors to the awning fabric.
  • Do not use strong chemicals or abrasives to clean parts, as their protective surfaces will be damaged. Clean awning hardware (as needed) with a mild surface cleaner.
  • Apply silicone spray lubricant as needed to the moving parts on the fabric roller tube assembly.
  • Lubricate all pins and sliding surfaces of the arm assemblies with silicone spray, as needed.
  • Do not use abrasive or corrosive cleaners, mildew removers, or hard bristle brushes on the awning fabric.

Vinyl awning fabric is durable and water-resistant. Wrinkling is a normal characteristic, which may be more noticeable when the awning is retracted, and after prolonged periods of stowage (rolled up). Leave the awning open during warm weather to minimize wrinkling. A slight “travel line” may appear where the door roller (if installed) contacts the fabric. This is normal and does not affect the integrity of the fabric.

To clean the fabric:

  • Open the awning.
  • Mix 1/4 cup soap with five gallons of fresh water. Always use a natural soap, not a detergent. The water should be cold to lukewarm, never more the 100° F.
  • Liberally drench the fabric with cleaning solution.
  • Close the awning and allow the cleaning solution to soak for five minutes.
  • Open the awning and thoroughly hose off the top and bottom of the fabric with clean water. Repeat if necessary.
  • Remove the solution COMPLETELY from the awning fabric.
  • Make sure the fabric is dry before closing the awning. Air-dry only. Never apply heat to the fabric.

Your recreation vehicle may include one or more of the following options:

  • Power window awnings
  • Slide out awnings
  • Power awning over entrance door

Power switches to operate the awnings are typically found in the control panel above the entrance door or if your RV has a touchscreen, the awning controls may be located there.

Power Awnings (if so equipped)

NOTE:
Electric awnings requires connection to a 120-volt power source. Make sure you have sufficient power available before operating your awning (refer to Electrical Systems, Calculating electrical load).

Each power awning will have its own control switch. Pressing and holding the switch will extend or retract the awning. The awning should automatically stop when the switch is released.

NOTE:
Do not overextend the awning. If the awning or awing skirt show signs of overextending, retract the awning until it is in the appropriate position.

  • Most power awnings give you the ability to adjust the awning pitch (slope). This will help with water runoff and pooling. When adjusting the awning scope, be aware of entrance door and window clearances. Coming into con-tact with a door or window can damage or tear the awning fabric.

Most power awnings have a manual override in the event the awning will not retract.
Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide for detailed safety, operating and troubleshooting information.

In Motion Detector (if so equipped)

Some patio awnings are equipped with a motion detector. If the patio awning experiences extreme or excessive movement, it will automatically retract to the travel mode position.
For detailed safety and operating information, refer to the manufacturer’s user guide.
