Mechanical awnings all have springs inside the awning tube. They can be DANGEROUS if you don't know what you are doing when trying to release or tighten them. You didn't say who made the awning so can't give any recommendation on tightening it other than go to the manufacturers web site and download a manual. The procedure will be in that. You may need an extra set of hands.

LeeB, which model Carefree? You may have some paperwork that will tell you. If not looking around on their site if you don't see one like yours, look in their discontinued area for it. If that fails, send me a picture that shows the arms where it connects to the roller, and a wide picture showing all the awning (rolled up is OK) and I will see what I can find. You have the email address.

Carefree have a spring at each end one is most likely broken. I just replaced one on mine. Not rocket sience but it can be DANGEROUS. If you have an awning with a large circular groove, like 1/2 inch on the bottom while extended it is a utility awning and needs a special spring, no more $$$ just special. Same part # just a "-U" at the end. Finding out which end is broken is the problem and unless you have seen this done a pro maybe in order.
