How to Angle the Awning on 2014 Winnebago View

Does anyone know of a way to angle the awning on a Winnebago View so that when it rains the water runs off instead of pooling on the awning? I know this is possible with a manual control, but the View's control is electronic.

If it's an electric awning like on my Itasca Spirit... (I'm sure they are identical awnings) then you pull down on one side or the other and tighten the hand twist knob to make it stay at the height you chose. Don't forget to loosen it again before you retract it. There is a knob on each side so you could decrease the height and tilt it from either or both. Mine has a pretty good slope to it without doing anything.

NOTE: You cannot increase the height with these knobs. They are already at max vertical height because the spring tension of the awning mechanism pulls them up and away from the coach naturally. You can only decrease height and then hand tighten to hold that position.

Get a couple of rubber washers under the knobs to help them stay put.

I have a 13 View with the electric awning. The awning will automatically dump the rain when it gets heavy enough to pull down the lift pistons. If you pull down on the upper outer arm you can see how it works. You also can adjust one side by pushing in the button and moving it one notch. That will make the rain drain in that direction. You should put it back while traveling because it doesn't pull tight in the channel.
