Trying out the awning on our new 69 sovereign
and have some questions to confirm (so I don’t break it – not cheap to replace I see!)
So I unlatched both sides and me and the missus pulled it out about 6 feet then I noticed the front lower attachment point was really bowing down and out, like “is this going to rip out/off?” so we put it back away for the day to figure out what’s up.
So photo 1 shows the bracket – turns out a bolt broken, I’ll have to drill is out I suppose? However, the design seems lightweight in general as the missus said her side, with both screws, also looked like it was pulling away from the body – is there a way to beef up the design? A bracket brace or ??
Photo 2 – one piece has pulled out from the other – are these fixable or replaceable? I’m actually not sure what the pieces are for?
Which bring a more general question – what kind of awning is this, and how does it work? I’ve used the search function for a couple hours but couldn’t find anything that appeared to match what I have (plus the photo gallery was down). Maybe the bowing is from my misuse…but I don’t think that much bowing even if so.
Photo 3 just shows another spot where I need to drill out a broken screw, but not sure what it was for to know if I really need to do it?
