Zip Dee Awning

I have an older 1993 Zip Dee Awning and am having trouble getting it to roll up without helping it along. Is there a spring that can be rewound or replaced? Thanks for any help!

Yes you can tighten the spring the instructions I have from Zip Dee is for our 2000 model coach says to open the awning and with a second person holding it in the middle is to remove the left arm and loosen the spring then rewind the spring 30 rounds then reattach and that is not easy to do you really need a 3 rd person. Before you do this contact Zip Dee with the year of your unit to make sure it 30 rounds, I think I only used 18 rounds but not sure as that was a couple yrs ago.

Here's the location for the Zipdee instructions. Repairs and Adjustments

I've been to Zipdee for service and they adjust the tension with two people. I think a 3rd person might be helpful.

I called ZipDee and was told one turn for every foot of length of the awning and then add eight more. Be careful when you let the arm loose as it can get away from you and it will hurt when you get hit.

I also had a 1 foot bow in the roller and with their directions got the roller straight again. As long as there are no kinks, you can straighten the rolle.
