How To Open RV Awning

by Pat
(Spirit Lake Iowa)

We bought a 2004 Sun Vally 16 foot camper.

Where can we find info on how to use the awning. This is our first camper so don't want to ruin anything.

Thanks for any advice!


ANSWER: Greetings Pat thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Well as they say a picture is worth a 1000 words so I guess a video is worth 5000 words. Take a look at the video below to see how to operate an RV Awning.

The video also demonstrates that even RV Experts sometimes have problems operating RV Awnings.

RV Awning Type?
by: Ryan J

I'm pretty sure the original question was referring to a Coleman Sun Valley pop up camper, not a typical travel trailer. The bag awnings on pop ups are very confusing at first and when I first got my pop up, I couldn't find any instructions online either. I just had to trial and error it. Im still not aware of any instructions, however pop up bag awnings vary greatly by year and manufacturer. As a result, it would take several videos or sets of instructions just for the common ones.
