A&E Awning not rolling up all the way

I have an A&E manual awning on my 38' Newmar KS. The left side (or rear) does not roll all the way up. The cover hangs a bit. I tried increasing the tension (only 1 turn), but am not so sure that will help. Also looked to ensure nothing is bent (arms, or main roller).

Any and all advise is greatly appreciated!

Looks like the anchor point needs to be repositioned to allow the upper arm to seat when closed.

check to make sure the canvas has not moved on the roller a little. The problems I had with mine rolling up was always connected to the canvas not aligned correctly on the roller tube. I got mine where I wanted it and it would roll up like normal and then marked the position with a line on the roller tube with a permanent marker. This way I could see at a glance (with the awning open) if it was aligned and would close correctly and if not I could adjust it so it would.

I think Phil is right. That's probably what is wrong. I had that happen on my 5er several times over the years.

Thanks very much for the info. It makes sense with the canvas moving on the roller. Will work on adjustments and see what happens. Great advise!
