Well after all the warnings and advice I have given others it has now happened to me. I left my Awning out last Thursday night up in Lovelady and left the camp and shazam 3" of snow the sleet. I got back and was afraid to try and roll up. Next morning I melted ice off instead of raking but tube is bowed. My ?? is I have a Weather Pro A&E and can I get a replacement tube and salvage the motor or being a 2003 would I be best to just replace all. The arms seem to be fine but I also need new fabric. My other damage or adder to the honey do list is the Tv antenna. I had not used in several months and went to spin it up and the handle striped off. Knowing this is no big deal I set it in the drawer. When the rain started after the snow I noticed a very small water spot on the bed. It looks like the leak maybe at a seal point and I would think maybe an "O"ring were it would allow it to turn. Any help greatly appreciated. Keep the dust on ya boot BKF Hey you can tear it up in the driveway and still have to fix it. Its not as fun that way.

We have all done bone headed things like this of one sort or another. It's how you learn and it's those lessons that mature an RV'er from amateur to pro!!!

Personally I would replace only those components that are broke!

You can buy a repair kit at any rv dealer for the ant. I had to replace mine and it took about 10 min.

Call A&E. I think you will find replacing is not a steep amount, but that is in the eye of the purchaser.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I once rubbed my awning roller against a tree limb, bending it. Camping world replaced it for about $700.00. Roland
