Post by: Littrelljd on September 24, 2016, 07:42:21 PM
New to RVing and to this forum.  Is this  something we can replace ourselves?  2000 Minnie Winnie - The  slide out awning jammed and the slide out would not go out. Need to replace the slide out awning.  Is this something we can do ourselves? Thx!

If you have a few mechanical abilities you should be able to do it. Look on You Tube for a lot of videos on replacing awnings etc.
I replaced the patio awning on my 2006 Winne a couple of years ago. I did enlist the help of a couple of my neighbors for assistance in handling the long  (16') tube.

Welcome.  As an FYI your 'slide out awning' is commonly referred to as a slide topper or just topper.
