    Awning tilt

    Hi folks
    Took my new Reflection out to Yellowstone this last weekend,great time.
    My question is how do you adjust the awning to bring it down to like a 45 degree angle?
    My old TT camper with a manual system I would bring it down like a sun visor in the late evening.
    I can tilt it to allow for rain runoff. Is there a way to bring the angle down much like a sun visor
    Any advise?

    Thanks

    Hi Dan and Brandy
    When the awning is open there is a bracket on the bottom on both sides that folds in the middle. When you pull these brkts down it will drop the front of the awning down or you can do one side to allow rain to run off. I just discovered this feature the other day.

    Your dealer should have pointed that out on the PDI but that is why the forum is here! It doesn't tilt it enough to make a sun shield but it will allow to "direct" what direction you want rain water to dump. I was told also that you don't have to straighten out the arm before retracting. Haven't tried that yet.

    You are right Jim, it will auto correct when you retract the awning. It's very simple and a great feature.

    Wow! That's great to know. Thanks. Will definitely be giving it a try. With all the rain we are having, I close the awning but now won't have to! Thanks.
