Carefree Awning Retracts In A Nice Breeze
tmkkmk8 posted a topic in Systems and AppliancesWe purchased a new 2017 Fleetwood Bounder 36H on July 1, 2017. The dealer service currently has it which marks a total of eight weeks in three visits. The coach's workmanship and quality are the worst that I have seen. One thing that seems to have no answer is the Carefree awning. Great idea if it worked. The structure and foundation of the system are so weak that the awning auto retracts in a nice breeze. Fleetwood made the decision to include the awning control in the Ilumiplex system eliminating the on/off switch supplied by Carefree. I would be concerned anyway as the awning bounces up and down in just a nice breeze so if I did shut it off I fear that any small gust would break it right off. Anyone have any suggestions? We will work through the rest of the poor design and quality issues but the awning concern seems to be hopeless. We have resigned to putting our lawn chairs under trees as the awning is useless.
