    Awning problem

    My awning now extends when I push retrieve and retrieves when I push extend. It also looks like it is rolling up backwards. It was not like this until midway through our last trip. Functionally it still goes all the way out and back in. So it works..... sort of.

    Anyone else have this problem or any ideas? Thanks,

    Awning problem

    It will continue to roll in one direction
    Nothing stops it

    You need to release the button when the valance is hanging straight down and then stop

    Hard to say where you are at in its cycle. You may have to go all the way out and in in one direction then start over

    This is hard to do by accident is there a chance a kid is playing with it?

    Like NB said, just extend it and don't stop until it comes back.

    This is very EASY to do by accident. We did and had a very hard time trying to figure out what was wrong.
    I was even on the phone with Grand Design and they couldn't figure out what was wrong.

    My awnings have done that from day one. I assumed this was normal function and just let up when the valence is straight down. I have had it come back on me, just pull it back in by retracting till it is where you want.
