oh wow....I'm really sorry to hear that.
I was under the impression that you were probably done with it or that you had the parts and may be just need it an extra couple of hands.
again really sorry

Ha, no worries my man. I sincerely appreciate the offer to help. I'll let you know when this thing gets momentum again. I just bought my daughter her first car so a lot of my resources and time are going there right now.

I still need to swing by and see the beast!!

Gus, how about I just show up with a sixer of cold beer when it's all said and done? hehehe.

As an update, I finally got the plastic end caps in... took almost a month for Oasis RV in Tucson to get them to me. They lied on three separate occasions on how they were shipped and when they were shipped.

When I called to cancel my order and demand a refund, she assured me they'd be there the same day. Turns out they were... because she overnighted them the day before. So for three weeks, they were lying to me about when they sent them out. If the price wasn't absolutely absurd, and they told me it'd be a month, I'd have no problem. The only reason I paid the $60 for two small pieces of plastic is because they told me they were shipping them the same day and I was hoping to have them that weekend. I'll know for future dealings... don't order anything from Oasis RV in Tucson. I normally wouldn't put a company on blast like that, but they really hosed me on all accounts.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand, I'm going to get the trailer from storage tomorrow night I believe and get to work on the awning. We'll see how far I get.

As an update, I took some wise advice and replaced the plastic end caps with the newer carefree caps with the integrated springs. My springs were wasted and this solved both the problems I had.

I bought new vinyl at a local RV clearance center for $100 and the new springs and end caps for $150. I'm missing the center support piece so I ended up strapping the awning down with some ratchet tie downs. With the winds here this weekend, I probably would have done it anyway.





Thanks to all who've chimed in. Next up is an alumiguard add on.
