Talking about awnings, how do the little gizmos work that look like wheels at the top of the arm. I can't ever seem to get them to latch and they hang loose. I'm new at this and am learning fast.

They clamp down the awning arms to the trailer. loosen the wheel and slide it over the slot on the arm (head) and tighten down. I would not travel without the awning secure.

Please don't travel with them loose. It's asking for an accidental deployment.

You can tighten them with the awning rod as shown in the drawing above, however, many of us carry a small stepladder or stepstool and tighten them by hand. If you can reach them, you can tighten them much more securely by hand and also loosen them more easily to erect the awning.

I carry a little 2' high stepladder in the bed of my truck.

Thumbs up

We have the full length awning on the road side of our 25' Sovereign ... It is a breeze deploy and to stow.

Cool Full size patio

I recently installed a full size patio awning (zipdee) on my 25 ft Trade Wind. Went on easy, opens easy! I am not to sure about the opening tool. I am going to bring a two step folding stool with me to help with the latching and unlatching of the arms. I also installed a window awning (not a zipdee) on my rear bath window.
