Question Awning

I need to replace the fabric on my awning on a 2004 Terry. No book came with it on the awning. Any ideas on what brand was used. I think Dometic/A&E but need to order fabric and want to be as accurate as possible. Thanks

My bet is AE, but if you look at some of the YouTube vids where folks are replacing fabric you may be able to see the difference in brands.

If you have never done it before you need- Drill/bits, vise-grips, riveter/rivets, a dry type of spray for the channel/raingutter to use as lube and piddly things like a marker and tape.

I know I will be able to do the next one in about an hour and that is mostly by myself with having my wife hold this/that every now and then. The first time I even tried to put the fabric on upside down. Was a great learning experience for a DIYer.

on the units I've replaced... the vertical arms usually have a decal and almost always on the roller is the brand name/model/serial #... I ordered the last one on line and they sent a copy of Dometic insturctions.... as idnative suggested... I used most of what he is suggesting... and a 3"x5" long bristle brush (3" bristle).. we mixed a little dawn and hot water and cleaned the tracks with that... Its important you understand how to drill & replace pop rivets and have the right size...

Sorry been out of town. I have a pop rivit gun and drawers of different sizes in SS and aluminum. I was a superintendent for a shipyard in my younger life. Lots of things going on but the good news we got 3 inches of rain and my roof repair did not leak.(different post)

Be very careful if you replace the fabric yourself. The roller is under a lot of spring tension, and there are techniques to deal with it on some of the youtube videos. For your own safety, please view them, or hire the job out.

You will be fine if you watch a couple of the videos. What I did and had issue zero other than pulling the new fabric into the channel upside down and had to pull it back out (my bad). After you worry yourself sick about doing it I am guessing the next one you do will be an hour tops! Would be nice if you had somebody else giving you a hand. It is REALLY not that hard to do.
