I wondered why deploying the awning on my FC 19 was so difficult! I watched the videos on how to deploy, and noticed that when pulled open, the awning is supposed to stay unrolled, allowing you to go to each side and deploy the rafter bars.

My awning does not stay unrolled, tension stays on the awning so I have to have somebody hold it open while I deploy the rafter bars.

Is there a fix for why my awning doesn't want to stay in the unrolled position while I deploy the rafters?

Probably need to unwind the spring a turn or two. Zip Dee's site has the document that shows how to do it. The link to that document is in a previous post in this thread.

BE CAREFUL!!!!!! Or have someone else do it that can do it without injuring themselves.
