We have a 2004 Beaver motor home and have had some trouble with the manual window awning straps. We know that Carefree has a new upgrade that has a large "key hole" in the housing. The cord has a large rubber gromet on the end of the strap that comes out of the key hole. I am hearing mixed reports regarding the new strap/gromet arrangement. Some have said it makes a lot of noise beating on the side of the coach from wind when driving and also on windy nights when you are trying to sleep. We would like to hear from others who have the new Carefree Awning assembly and their experience with it before we take the step to have it installed.
