    RE: Awning Roller Replacement

    is this a manual awning ,, or automatic ,, if manual ,, on the front of the awning ,, and front of the rv ,, there is a little switch type thing ,, if what i read right ,, the awning is in the open position ,, right??? if so then find that little switch type thing ,, and push it up ,, the awning should try to roll up if u got it right ,, to roll it down ,, do the oppisite ,, pull the switch down ,, but one other thing ,, u will still have to get a hold of the pull strap and help the awning up or down ,, unless it is an automatic ,, then that is another topic altogether ;) :approve: :)
    sorry ,, welcome to the forum :approve: :approve: :cool:

    Re: Awning Roller Replacement

    Once you have the awning tube installed and the fabric rolled up on it, there is a spring in the end which must be preloaded by several turns. I don't know how many but I do know that you need to be careful when winding it up. It should be turned in the direction which is the same as the awning unrolling. That way pulling the awning down makes the spring get tighter and when it is rolled back up the spring still keeps a slight pressure on the roll to keep it tight.
