Awning Tube Or Assembly

Hello All

I know this is not the correct place to post this, but sure it will be moved there. After having no luck locally , looking for a replacement 18 ft Dometic/A&E roller tube, or a 2 ft. piece of one to repair mine from this !!! Found the whole tube online, but the shipping !!!!!!!. I think with a piece to replace the crimped part, i can splice it back together ( i'm fairly crafty)

Anyone can help ?????
Many Thanks Jim

I have been successful in buying awning parts from Camping World. If you don't want to pay the freight, there is a store in Savannah, about 1.5 hours drive for you.

You may repair the tube, but the fabric is stretched beyond repair. It will flap like crazy and you won't be able to drop one end to get rain runoff. Rain will puddle and bring it down again.

You need a tube and a fabric; the fabric is pinched in the tube and you'll never get out.

Bet your hardware is broken/bent. You might as well or a new fabric roller tube asy., and a new set of hardware.
