Awning replacement instructions

Sorry to post this but I tried looking at the site to find instructions to replace my awning 16'. I saved the instructions somewhere, but can't find it. Does anyone have the steps to replace my fabric? I'm looking to have 3 of us do it. Do I need any special tools or supplies?

Thanks
Arnold

on the web, or 'google', type in 'Awing Installation'...several sites..
A little help...new awing will come with a 'double over' seam, that is
inserted in grove of 'awing rail' on camper and 'awing roller'. Put
'double over' seam in 'grove' first, and then feed 'rubber' that holds
awing in place from ends. (there may be different diameters of rubber?)
On the 'awing roller' is a set of numbers, using these will get replacement
awing, same as old one. I'm sure you'll hear from others that have some
more pointers....Have a Great Day!

I helped replace fabric on an awning a few years ago. It is best to have 3 people available to help guide the fabric during the install. I've got a pdf file for A&E awnings that I down loaded from the internet a few years ago. As suggested earlier, do a search for awning replacement. If you can't find it, pm me and I will send you a copy of what I have.

You can download installation manuals for A&E awnings here

Operation & Installation Manuals - Dometic

If you buy the fabric from A&E (Dometic) it comes with complete instructions.

I have the instructions for several A&E models - what make & model awning do you have?

Gary,

Thanks for the information. I have an A & E 9000 on my 87 Allegro. I already have the fabric but no instructions. I know it is important to keep the roller spring tight so I want to make sure I have everything. Do I need any special tools?

Nothing special for tools - just basic hand tools. I use vice grips to grab the roller shaft and turn it, and you need a long cotter pin or stiff wire to insert in the roller tube to lock it in place against the spring tension. The pin has to be long enough to go completely through the tube, so something about 4" or so.

If you will send me a PM with your email address, I'll send you a pdf file with instructions for your awning. It's the official A&E document.
