Search question

Guys and gals,
I ran a "search" a few minutes ago to find a thread in regards to "Bent Awning Tube repair".......the "search function came back with 4,951 suggestions. Now, let's be a bit realistic here, as much as I like the Forums, I have no intent of spending several days to find the answer to what must be a fairly common problem.

I've had this problem before when trying to do searches.

Can anyone give me a suggestion on how to sift through the chaf when searching for a specific subject?

Thanks for your help

Larry

There are two search boxes. The second one works much better.

That is because the second box is a Google search. The search function on the Forum has no use what so ever.

I agree about the forum search function

I do a Google search and include " airstream" or " airstream forum" depending if is an airsteam specific issue. I get better results much faster.

Try the Zip-Dee website. I think they have links to a couple of video's related to repairs that we can do ourselves.
