Bowed Awning

Well one more problem, we left our awning out in Ga. and came back with it tilted way more than when we left. it had filled with water and thank goodness for our fellow airstreamers they dumped the water out. But it warped the roller. my husband (being Mr. fix-it) thought he could just force it straight? Help please as he has just had open heart surgery & not quite to BRUNO static again. should we just bite the bullet and replace the whole awning?

Sandra, If your owner's notebook has the ZipDee information included you should find instructions on how to remove all or most of the bow. Check it out. Otherwise, there will be plenty of help soon on this forum I feel confident. You're not the only one to experience this and I feel certain there will be no reason to replace the awning. After learning the hard way I now put my main awning away if I leave the trailer for a long period of time or if there's wind or threat of rain.

In dog years, I'm dead!

Is the roadside awning option for a 28' Classic really just a single 19' awning? Dave Jenkins Our Community 1 08-17-2003 03:07 PM
