Hello Airstream Friends,
I have a 1973 31' Land Yacht Sovereign
. I have a 20' awning that is driving me crazy. I was able to remove it from the AS. I am not sure the type of awning it is. My guess is a Carefree, but when I try to find similar awnings hardware -- nothing looks quite like it. So, if you can give me a clue, I would really appreciate it.
I am trying to remove the awning from the roller and have had zero success. First, the spring mechanism won't release from inside the roller giving access to remove the awning. It just pulls out about an inch with resistance. Thus, I can't get the end cap off to remove the awning.
Second, which seems quite odd, it has three channels (quite normal) but instead of using just one channel to attach the awning, it has two beads connected to the roller. I can't figure out how to get a hold on the awning to pull it out of the roller. It will certainly be a chore because of the length of the roller.
I will upload some pictures. If you can look at the photos and identify the manufacturer and give any suggestions on how to remove this monster, I would greatly appreciate it.
Struggling in Pennsylvania,
