There will be tension on the roll because of the loading of the spring(s) inside of the roll. You must remove that tension before you start the removal process. Failure to do so can cause damage to your Airstream and to you.

I have done this with my ZipDee, but I have no experience with a carefree awning. Hopefully someone who has done this will explain the procedure.

This thread may help. A word of caution when dealing with awning torsion springs. "Be Careful".

Good luck,

Kevin
