On our 07 Camelot, the slide awnings (SOK 111) are getting holes where the cover rubs the fabric when closed -- It is a 35 degree angle from the MH channel to the slide cover when closed -- I think the angle is to extreme, causing the fabric to tilt up against the cover -- The channel is mounted above the roof trim -- If it was mounted below the trim, the fabric would be more level with the slide case -- Any others with this problem, or is just me again?

Bill,
Have not seen that problem. I washed the MH and roof a week or so ago. I had the slides out to clean them off and did not notice any unusual wear. My slide awnings are at about a 15 degree angle or so and nowhere close to the 35 degree you are seeing.

WW,
I have to agree with Sixpack as mine are also about 15 degrees if that much.

Bill,

I recently noticed a similar problem on rs rear slide. Angle isn't as severe as yours but it is different than my other 3. Looking at your 2nd picture mine starts next to the vertical stitch and is about 2" long. I have an appointment later this week at a local dealer and will add this to the list. Will let you know what they say.
