When I saw the thumbnail picture, it looked like there was a giant hole in the side of your trailer. My heart sank. I was relieved when I opened the picture to find it is the awning. That is fixable, and although you have been through so much already, you know you can fix it. I guess this is why people say that our "stuff" owns us...always demanding attention. FWIW, I use our awning very little, because I have have had problems with wind dismantling it. I never go to bed with the awning deployed. You'll get through this repair and find that it is easy compared to what you have already done to your trailer. Godspeed, my friend.

Thanks and you are right, I'm off to the RV place to see about repair parts. I don't have problems compared to a lot of people.

If the inside is still dry, you are way ahead of the game.  That was a true test of your hard work.

Well to add salt to the wound now this, thanks Irma

The question is, did it leak? :)

Well not that I could tell, problem is I bought it not knowing it was full leaks :) the only way to know if it is leaking again is to buy a moisture meter or wait for it to rot ;D

Well I spent another 115.00 in repair parts, one rv place had a complete used arm assembly $55.00. Sense there were no more to be found I had the bottom foot welded back on the arm 60.00 buck plus tax which I thought was high for 15 minutes work :( oh well , now if I can get help threading the canopy back in place. Still have not used it and I can never sell it because my conscience won't let me.

I get that a lot but I usually wont throw the switch on my welder for less than $60. I have 6K in tools and time spent (5 yrs) apprenticeship...I have seen what cheap welding looks like. If you were close I would have done it for free, just for you!
Glad your damage was not worse and hope you dont find any moisture later. Good job !!

Thanks, I don't think I want to do that, now I know why the repair guy wanted $3000 to $4000. I wouldn't do it....wait a minute, I did :)

I just read your entire thread.  I am very impressed.  I seem to find people claim they have no experience or skills and then they turn out some beautiful work. 

I just thought I had a daunting task to replace a pair of twin beds with a single full size bed.  My hat is off to you!

So glad you got her fixed again and the damaged wasn't too bad.  I actually laughed out loud when I read the comment on your mix matched wheels.  I went back and looked, they didn't start out that way and here I was so impressed with your work and attention to detail. - Haha I have no doubt you have already switched them back for matching sides.   :)

Actually no😁 the tire that was on there went flat while I was working on it. The valves rubber seal had torn??? I put the spare on and never notice the difference in the wheels. I was going to replace the bad valve and use this tire as the spare because it is worn. Now because someone had to raise the point about different wheels I may have to rethink that idea😡 On a brighter note after 5 months sense purchase we are going on our first trip... to the beach!
