Pullout Awning

How do you take the slack out of the awning over the pullouts. Two of the three have slack so when it rains there is standing water.

I think you will always have standing water after a rain unless your awnings are mounted so they slope away from the coach. You can unravel the spring loaded awning holder, then remove the awning and make a few more turns to load the spring up and then reinstall the awning. That will put more tension on the awning, but the loner awning frames will bow a bit making the water puddle.

Sometimes i go up top and sweep off the water and clean the awnings and sometimes i just pull them in and watch the waterfall.

Thanks. I do go up and sweep the water away after a rain. Since one is tighter than the other two, allowing the water to run off, I was hoping I could easily adjust them.

Go to Wal-Mart buy a few balls just large enough to push up under the toppers two for topper use a string and duck tape so you can pull them across that keep the water from sitting on the topper just remember to take out before you close the slide
