Yes, it can be repaired. The spring and mechanism slides into the steel tube from the end. Look on the Zip dee site for a sketch of the parts. Held in with some pop rivets that need to be drilled. You may not even have to take the tube out of the awning fabric. There is a good bit of spring tension involved if this is a do it yourself repair. Maybe $250 for the part? It has been a while since I did mine. Last time I called Zip Dee they would not sell me a part direct. Before that they did.

Hey there, Zip Dee here! We're sorry to hear that your spring broke, but we can definitely get you a new one. You just need to call customer service to ensure that we figure out the correct spring for your vehicle. Call 847-437-0980 and ask for Randy. He's getting lonely up front so he'll be glad to hear from you!
