I guess I can kind of see that, but it's attached to a solid surface. I can't see the body twisting that much to make a difference. Plus mine is level in my driveway.

Everything is level so that's not an issue and I'm plugged into shore power so battery (which is new) isn't a factor either.

Mine have always gone out fast and come in much slower. This year the awning on the slide is tediously slow. If a rain storm hit it would probably collapse before it cane all the way in. The main slide on the front is still the same as last year. Mine is plugged in as well and both batteries are at 100%.

Ill try and see if this helps you. If you can get the awning to go out all the way, get a ladder and locate the motor side of it. You will find the wiring harness that feeds the motor. Unplug the connector by the motor, and have someone press the awning switch, while you have a multimeter hooked to the wires that come from the camper feeding the motor. You should get a strong 12 volt reading in both directions. If not you may be having a voltage drop that is causing the problem. I just replaced my awning motor and its rpm rating on the motor is 32 rpm just so you know what mine turns.

Update: it was indeed a power issue. There was a loose connection on the fuse panel. Not something I could have fixed myself. The dealership fixed it in 30 minutes. They also took care of a couple other misc items so I knocked out several birds with one stone.
