The A & E Lateral Arm awning is extremely durable and can
be operated during moderate rain and wind conditions. However, when periods of heavy rain and/or wind is expected
the awning should be closed. Damage caused by wind and
rain is not covered by warranty.
When the wind sensor is set to “ON” position DO NOT hang
items from the awing or tie the awning down. Damage to the
awning and items may occur if the sensor is activated and the
awning attempts to roll in.

Important: When installed on a motorized RV, this system is wired to prevent accidental awning extension when vehicle ignition key is in the on
position. When ignition key is turned on, the power going to the awning
will be interrupted and it will not operate in the "Extend" mode. This however, will not prevent awning from being retracted.
When the wind sensor is set to the “OFF” position, and the
wind speed exceeds the control preset level, damages may
occur. Damage caused by wind is not covered by warranty.
If Awning will not operate and wind sensor switch is in the “ON” position,
wind conditions may be above the preset wind speed which will not allow
the awning to open. If wind sensor is ‘ON” and the sensor cable becomes
unplugged with the awning in the out position, it will automatically close
in 30 seconds.
The wind sensor is specifically designed to allow air to pass through the
carousel. If the sensing element in the wind sensor becomes wet the awning
will not open if closed; or will automatically close if open. Normally the
only way for it to get wet is by driving in rain or spraying water directly
into the carousel. However, it is possible for it to get wet from severe
angled rains or water condensing on the wind sensor. If you suspect this has
occurred wait ten minutes for it to dry out before operating awning.
Important: The wind sensor will only function correctly if the airway to
the sensing element is clear. Keep airway clear of dust, insects, ice snow, or
other debris. The sensing element can be cleaned with a mild soap solution and a small soft bristle brush.
Note: The awning control box contains an audible alarm. This alarm will
sound if the wind sensor is exposed to temperatures below 30 degrees when
the sensor switch is “ON” ,or when the awning control has detected a
problem either in the wind sensor or the wind sensor cable. If you hear a
beeping sound coming from the control box when the sensor switch is in the
IGNITION LOCK FEATURE
Whenever the vehicle ignition is on, a signal is sent to the awning
controls to prevent the canopy from extending and AC power is available.
A&E HELPFUL HINTS:
Whenever the awning is wet while rolled up, as soon as conditions allow, roll it out and let it dry before rolling it up again.
This will help prevent the formation of mildew and extend the life
of the awning.
•
Mildew does not form on the fabric itself, but on the accumulated
dust, dirt and grime. Periodically clean vinyl or woven acrylic
fabric using a mixture of 1/4 cup of dish soap and 1/4 cup of bleach
mixed with 5 gallons of warm water. Liberally slosh the mixture
on the top of the fabric and roll the awning in for 5 minutes. This
will apply the mixture to the bottom as well. Roll it back out and
hose off with fresh water. Repeat if necessary. Allow to dry before
rolling up.
Note: Operating the awning in and out more than two times in
secession can cause the motor overload to open. Always make
sure that the awning is fully extended or closed before opening the
door.
