- Remember to unlock the Classic powered patio awning by holding the two buttons on the bottom of the control panel inside the entry door.
Complete operating instructions have been provided with your awning. Make sure your traveling companion is familiar with the operation of the awning. The awning’s primary function is sun protection, therefore, roll up your awning in case of heavy rain, wind, or snow.
To prevent water buildup on the awning during a light rain, position one upper arm lower than the other to create enough of a slope for adequate water runoff. Clear tape is placed between the exterior skin and the awning fabric to prevent the awning fabric from rubbing on the coating, thus wearing through it. Inspect the tape every year or after a long trip. Have it replaced if it begins to wear thin.
