Pictures would help somewhat. Make sure you get clear close-ups of the awning arms and the slide tracks. If you are able to roll the awning out then it would not be an issue with the travel lock as this is meant to keep the material/roller from unfurling during travel. Some arms have slide locks that keep the arms together in the stowed/lowered position. They used a black or white knob on a machine screw that ran thru the upper arms and locked the inner slide and had to be loosened to deploy the arms to their extended position. Then you tightened the screw/knob to lock the arms in the extended position. Check the inner and outer sides of your arms to see if there may have been these lock screws that might be broken off in the nut cert. This would easily cause the stuck issue you describe. Or if actually stuck one inside the other then you could remove the bottom bolt that attaches the arm to the bottom brackets one at a time and try driving the inner slide out of the outer slide arm. Failing that you could always try a call to ZipDee and ask for assistance with your awning issue. I understand they can be very helpful and may even be able to furnish you with a manual. Ed
