Not real sure what you're asking, but if you're talking about getting behind the awning support arms when washing, then I agree it's a problem! I can run the brush up and down while pressing against the side of the support, and by doing that on both sides it gets under there pretty well.

We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I know you will enjoy our website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
Is the awning electric? If so, and you have been washing it,it could have the wind sensor wet and the controller thinks the winds are to high to extend the awning. After it has dried out, retry the operation to extend. Let us know what you find.
