A & E OneStep awning motor replacement

I need to pull the awning motor and take it to a local electric shop for repair/rebuild.

It looks like this might involve removing the complete awning tube from the motorhome in order to get the motor removed...is that correct?

If anyone has done this I would greatly appreciate any procedure help.

I've seen it done, the motor slips out of the tube, it was
held in by rivets that they drilled out, and used screws on
the re-install. IMHO, it is a job for the experienced pro,
the awing is spring loaded on the other end to assist in
retracting, so removal of the entire tube is a complicated
undertaking. They did not remove the tube, just stabilized
the motor end, and removed it.
