My neighbor has a cheap Jayco Hummingbird camper and the awning broke with a gust of wind. They fixed it. Took awhile sitting at the dealer but they did fix it. It's worth a phone call at the very least before going the route of buying a new one yourself or filing an insurance claim.

With the Fuzion we had, it would collapse, drain and then go back up itself.

This one collapsed and drained but then got stuck and DH had to baby it and hold the arms while I did the retract button and we were able to get it back, so I do think this is possibly a defective awning.

Thank you.


You probably have a Carefree of Colorado Longitude awning. That is what is on our 2019 381M. There is not any reference to an auto dump feature in the manual. I know they will collapse and pull the roller toward the coach. This will allow the awning to droop in the middle and release water. My buddy with a 351M had his do this. I am not sure if this intended as a dump feature or just a consequence of the way the arms move. Either way the dumping is erratic and probably shouldn't be relied upon. As much trouble as it is I always retract our awnings when we leave. I do have ours tilted, but make sure you follow the instructions based on what length awning you have.
