Zip-Dee Head Casting Loose On Roller

Hi,

I noticed one of the gray head casting as Zip-Dee calls it is kinda floppy on one side. As-if the hole in the head casting is 1/16" wider than the end of the awning that fits in there.

Other side is fine.

Tightening does nothing as it wont compress it and only holds in place. All parts seem accounted for...

IME things that have too much play don't last.

Am I right to be concerned?


Thanks,

Trav

That's how it's supposed to be. Don't mess with it.

The awing is spring loaded, don't mess with it. It can do serious damage to the trailer and to you.

Front cast head is tight and rear is loose. It has been this way for years and hasn't been a problem.

The spring is only attached to the tight end...correct?

Mines opposite; rear tight, front loose but I get the idea.

Thanks!
