Awning help!

Hi there

My awning had an issue on my 2000 coachman sports coach
It is an elite 9000

Here is the issue. The stabilization bar came off while fixing it I had to take the end cap off and I believe the awning internally un rolled. Meaning now it won't pull itself back up. The tension is not there any more.

Question is how do I reset it it how can I make it so that the awning will pull itself back up into the closed position.

Thx for any advice.

Go to the website, there is a chart that tells how many turns to wind the spring back up. It depends on the size of your awning. They also have illistrated instructions on how to for you.
