Maybe I misrepresented the type of awning.. It is 17 feet long but does cover the windows.It is not the patio awning.. and would be a real bugger to ship. I will call tomorrow and order a new spring assembly for a 2.5 inch drum. Thanks for everyones replies

Well I called Zip Dee on Monday. Ordered a new spring assembly. It arrived today, I was going to wait til the weather warmed up above freezing.. But said oh well git er done.. so it was a quick drill out the old three rivets and slide out the broken assembly with help of a broomstick to snatch the broken half stuck inside. slid the new assembly in drilled three holes popped three rivets in gave it 18 winds and put the bolt back in.. Good as new.. The travel latch is going to sit on the shelf a while.. atleast til it gets to 50 degrees. I would like to thank all for their replies.

Eric-

Glad to be of help, and glad to see Zip Dee still helpful and able to supply parts and services to keep awnings in working condition..

Really impressed that you'd brave winter storms and cold to head out and work on awning in freezing cold.. That's the kind of passion and dedication that makes this Forum and Airstream owners so much fun! Hope you get a lot of chances to enjoy the trailer after weather warms up!!
