Unhappy Bent Awning

So... beautiful day - really amazing. Left my 1987 31 foot Sovereign set up on my land and ran to town for supplies. A storm of truly awesome proportion came through right before I got back - almost 3 inches of rain in 15 min along with thunder/winds/lightening. The result is a bent roller on my main awning. I am guessing it needs to be replaced (would love to find out otherwise). ANY information on a local resource in Atlanta that knows what they are doing on Zip Dee awnings would be appreciated.

I was able to straighten mine (mostly) by use of two ladders, straps, and hanging on the middle with the bend turned upward. Worth a try before replacing.

The best source for parts and advice is the ZipDee factory. They will ship any parts expedited as you wish. They will also ask you a few questions to make sure that you get the correct part.

A truly helpful company. Contact info here.
If it's to be, it's up to me.
