iamblum,

Would you care to share the vendor's name?

I still haven't pulled the trigger. The folks who promised to help with the sewing repair have gone reluctant on me.

96 Widglide,

It was at least 10-12 screws, and they were not rust-proof. Luckily they all came out without stripping, and just minor damage to the track.

As far as my polycord purchase, I received it from the Ebay seller last week. The OEM product was solid and this one looks more like a small tube. Wondering if that's the way it's manufactured now. If I realized it was like that, I could have bought a similar product at the local hardware store in town for less money and less time waiting for delivery.

Another thought. A friend, who's been a full time RV-er for many years, suggested using braided fishing line to sew the awning back together. I know that stuff is strong and lasts forever, but I'm not sure. You-all's thoughts.

I'll look again but I took measurements and then just search amazon for slide topper fabric. It's pretty cheap but at that price I can replace it about 4 times for the price of having it done at cw

I'd be careful of that "pretty cheap" fabric! Goes back to that old saying, "you get what you pay for"
