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.
