Awning angles TOWARD the trailer?

Noticed something over the past few weeks and finally took the opportunity to check out yesterday.

The awning directs water TOWARD the trailer unless it is fully extended. The awning actually opens in an upward arc until right at the very end of the extension when it does dip below horizontal so that the water will then flow away from the trailer.

There are some days when it's raining that we'd like to extend the awning a few feet so that we can open the door without getting rained on. But we don't want to extend the awning if the water is flowing toward the slide seals.

Not that I'm looking for a "fix" to this. Just more of an observation.

(We're in an HCT-26RB. Looks like a Reserve.)

If it is raining and you do not want to get wet , then just put the awning out all the way . but lower one side 2 or 3 holes lower than the other side and the water will run off the lower side.

Agreed. Also assumes cooperative winds.

Or you can visit the Forest River Forums and purchase the Awning Pole Kit from Old Coot and Turbs. Tell them I sent you. I'm Rugged Brown over there.
