It would go up and I did hear a snap like it locked. But I am afraid to drive it on highways now for fear it might come loose open up and cause us to crash.
Can they be tied down securely? Or does the whole thing just have to be removed and we're stuck and need a tow?
One recommendation is to buy or make several colored tags to hang on your steering wheel once you've settled into your RV park space (or even in a quick parking lot stay to rest your eyes):
One tag for leveling jacks
One tag for awning
One for slides
One... DW - Yes, that can happen!!!!! Especially if you just had an argument about leaving the awning out at the last stop.
