awning tension
« on: April 04, 2017, 05:43:06 PM »
hello , awhile ago I replaced the roof on my motorhome and my boys and I just put the awning back on . we put the upper brackets in the exact same spot as before to insure alignment would be the same. everything went good until I noticed that the awning now when it winds up doesn't keep a tight roll at the top. so when it is in the "park " position it isn't a tight roll.
im thinking maybe that we didn't warp the top over enough when we put it back on so we lost a little tension on the spring at the top.

is there a way for my to just add some tension to the spring with out taking the entire awning down again ?
