Power awning question

My new motor home as a Dometic power awning. Is it okay to extend it only part way out? I can't find any information about that in the manual and when I called Dometic, the woman on the phone says yes probably but she didn't sound too sure.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

FWIW - I extend mine part way all the time with no adverse effect. I don't think that it makes a difference since the motor stops when you release the out/in switch. The more important issues are to make certain that it doesn't get overwhelmed with rain water and that it is completely IN before travel.

I don't think you'll hurt anything but do watch the weather.

Also, bring it in when the wind starts picking up.
