carefree awning install
« on: May 18, 2018, 07:04:25 PM »
Hi Guys,
Finally managed to find all the parts I need for a carefree awning.  Got the arms today and awning today. Got a great deal too.  Arms and 16' awning for $75.  Had to drive 150 miles each way by was worth it if you look at the price for new ones.  Now I need someone to post a picture of how they are suppose to work.  I think I know pretty much from looking on carefree's website at the parts break down.  Not sure how they are suppose to close up and stay against the side of the RV.  I don't see any special brackets that snap them to the side.  I saw some straps I am guessing you use the strap the upper and lower arms together when they are closed.  Is that all that holds them against the side?

What model of Carefree?  There are several current models and even more past.   Most have installation and use manuals on the Carefree site and sometimes elsewhere.


Many videos on YouTube as well:
