Replacing the vinyl on Carefree Awning

Hi all,

Our 66 Ambassador has the original Carefree Awning. The blue vinyl is shot but the mechanics of the awning work great. Can the vinyl be replaced without removing the roller or does the entire assembly have to be removed ? Also, when the awning is extended, it appears (haven't measured exactly yet) to be approx. 5' in width. When I replace the vinyl, can I increase the width without any mods ?
Thanks,
Dan

Five feet is a bit short in length.
