Slide out awning cover

We are in Maine at a RV park by the water and the wind is 16 mph and has lifted the awning cover on the slide. I tried putting the slide in and the awning will not retract. I tied a rope from one end of the slide over the top and that is helping so the canvas is not flopping. When the wind dies down I may be able to do something to tighten the slack. My question is how to do it. I thought about just unbolting it and taking it down and have it fixed when I get home. 01 Dutch Star Cumins 330 with a turbo.

I have slide covers on my unit and the covers are 6-7 years old.. we've slept through 25/30 mph storms with no problem... these covers are spring loaded... if you unbolt it you need to consider how your going to CAGE it before you unbolt it... or expect it roll up on you like an old shade you've turned loose...

Sorry Culpkr, I can't answer your specific question but you may be able to gain some insight by watching one or two YouTube videos on awning replacement.

If you go to YouTube and search for "TheRVGeeks awning" you'll get a list of several. I suggest The RV Geeks awning videos as they have an 05 Mountain Aire so it may be of greater relevance also being a Newmar.
