Nova Awnings

Need a little help with poly rope coming out of my rear awning. Has anyone replaced the poly rope in a nova awning? I have searched this forum and internet with no joy. This is on a 2017 Dutch Star. We are out of warranty bought new in July of 2016.
Thanks for any help. Bob

Can not get picture until I can open awning completely and not fear not being able to close it. However the poly rope is the material that is used in awning to hold awning fabric in place on the end attached to the RV. It looks like a solid, round plastic rope about 1/4” in diameter running the entire length of the awning. “Poly rope” is a Girard Awning term

If this is the cord you're talking about, starting on page 36 talks about re-stringing. click on https://www.girardrv.com/pages/product-manuals click on Nova 2 manual

I would call Girard for assistance. We were at the FMCA Rally in Wy last week. Girard service was there and came out and adjusted our Nova awnings and got the LED lights working on our door awning which have never worked since purchase. Took their (2) techs less than 20 minutes to do both.

I was at Gillette and Girard was going to repair but said they had to open awning fully but the wind was to high for that.

Thanks for the info. It looks like I have to remove fabric, replace poly rope and then reinstall the fabric. More than a one person job.
