If you were in a dusty environment and wanted to get the dust off the top of the slide out so when you retract the slideout, the dust doesn't enter the cabin space, can you unhook the awning, and then go up there with a brush or air hose and brush or blow the dust off?
Or is the awning device sort of permanently attached making that idea difficult?
Do all slideouts use the awning device or are some manufacturers leaving them off...?
