Girard Awning Replacement

Hello all. This post has been revived at least once, so here's a second time. For those of you who switched out your awning or turned over the old one and reused, did any of you have a Girard awning? About 8-10 inches of the fabric on our Girard awning has come out of the groove and the 6 mm polirope has degraded. We're trying to decide whether to replace or try to reuse, but are wondering about the hassle involved in reusing/reinstalling the old one. Thanks.

On several awnings on older coaches, I pushed the awning material into the channel and inserted a piece of electrical wire into the awning material. Usually about a #10 or so wire was the right size.
