A&E up/down lever enhancement?

Have any of you found a way or an add on to enhance the up/down lever on an A&E awning? It is always problematic to flip the lever to the down position when it is in the up position and the awning is in the stored position - rolled up. Just seems someone would have come up with an add on to make flipping the lever to the down position easier. Any recommendations or DIY ideas? Thanks

My up/down lever flips easily with the loop end of my awning rod.

Not quite sure what you're getting at. Enhance the lever? Problematic? Is it that you think the up/down lever is too hard to move, or too hard to reach? It IS pretty high up with the awning retracted. I keep a three step step stool handy for several reasons, including reaching that awning lever. Or, you could pick up some 3/16" steel rod and make a new awning rod long enough to reach the lever from the ground.

One thing not to do is modify the lever on the awning. One small tree branch scraped and your awning is possibly gone at highway speed.
