Well today was a fruitful day, adjusted the awning. My bolts were a little loose, almost finger tight and there is a marker on the rail where it is supposed to be. I adjusted each arm out 1/4" and closed the awning, perfecto....gap is gone and back to being flush. Also tightened the bolts to eliminate future issues.
Also did my fridge fix using the left over Proflex from the solar panel fix (I hate opening a new tube of caulk when I have some open) took maybe 10 to caulk, 20 minutes ripping out the original gunk that was used.

Thumbs up

You have to get some bugs on your cover, Tom, similar to Red Dog. Yours is too clean to see against your clean walls.....

I just redid mine, for the second time. Seems like it maybe a biannual thing.

Just curious...was the front sticking out again? Is something slipping? I have read the instructions and will try in a couple days when we are stationary for a few days.
