We went to open our awning, and as instructed, pressed close prior to anything. Pressed open, the awning seemed to start to open, then the fuse blew. Replaced fuse, examined awning, only to see that the Zip Dee had completely pulled three feet of track off the aft end, and pulled about a foot of track away at the front. Rivets are every inch, and probably 30-40 are completely pulled out. Photos below.
Has anyone heard of this happening before? I will call Airstream Monday, but I don't see how this can be repaired without a major, major effort, maybe replacing the entire curbside panel.
