The campground road kept getting narrower and narrower. The last right turn caused a tree to leap out of its roots and attack the side of our coach. The issue is the awning. (WeatherPro power ) the arm is bent a bit and the cover won't snap securely over the back channel. It seems that the entire rear assembly needs to be replaced.
Is this doable? Or does the entire awning need to be replaced? Has anyone had this awning repaired or replaced? We're going back to Kentucky in May and will be going through Albuquerque in the beginning. That's the first large city on our route.
All information will be most appreciated. Thank you

Hi Cris,

My condolences and I have also done the deed in one of the local San Diego mountain campgrounds (Paso Picacho). The roller assembly replacement comes as one part. It will be about $900. Fortunately, the support arm on my rig was not damaged.

Ahhh...I hung a fender on my boat trailer (bent the axle) and screwed the awning up on my camper the same weekend last year (left it open in the wind). Sorry to say that the awning was a much more expensive repair. Sorry to hear about your troubles!

The arms are avaliable. They are about $800.00 for the pair from Camping world. This is the Installed price if I am not mistaken. I had some bent by a wind gust.

I think I met that Tree's little brother. The little bugger must have been teething because he chewed up the paint on the bay doors.

Before you spend all that money, take a look at Sunsetter awnings. They use almost the same extrusions and might be a bit less expensive.

In fact, if I ever have to replace my awning or get parts, there is where I'll go 1st (we have a LARGE Sunsetter awning over our rear deck).
