The first thing I added to my TW after I bought it was a patio awning. I also installed an awning over the rear window (bathroom) and recently added a street side window awning. The ZipDee awning goes up and down in less then 2 minutes. I use a small wooden stool to reach the locks.

If you remove the awning, you will have 4 plates still attached to your trailer. If you remove the plates, you will have 12 holes to fill.

I've been using the roller locking mechanism on the shaft to keep the awning deployed - though I know this is not particularly safe/good for the awning. Do you have any ideas for me?

My awning is rather old and it takes a great deal of my strength just to open the awning (pulling out the snap studs and moving the roller up & out) even with my newly purchased handles. Maybe it needs some maintenance somewhere?

Thanks for any advice, Laura

If you are having difficulties with your Zip Dee, I suggest you call them. They are very knowledgeable and exceptionally friendly and helpful on the phone.

Here is the toll-free number: 800-338-2378 You'll see there are a number of instructional videos on their site, but I'm guessiong you'll be further ahead calling them.
