The arm on the kitchen slide points straight up when extened. If you have the awning out with the kitched exteneded it puts lots of presure on the awning. Can it be adjusted to point down?

Thanks

I removed the arm in question on ours last year, after discussing with my dealer's service dept. They stated that it put there to keep the awning on the slide from unwinding if the spring inside awning broke. The tech I discussed it with said it was not a common problem and that older models didn't have that arm... I have no problems after removing and am more comfortable not having to worry about the arm rubbing on the main awning.

Frankie, you got your ears on !!!!!!
Now after you remove the arm you can leave that ladder you mount on the back ladder rack on your hurricane M/H at home. Now you can carry more weight .
