Hmmmm? Now I'm a little confused.
Just how does the awning unwind while in transit? Are there two ways this can happen?
1. The arms drop from the proper upright stowed position, pulling the awning out with them to its destruction on the open hiway.
2. The arms remain in the proper upright stowed position but the roller tube unwinds, billowing out the awning canopy like a wayward sail.
I have a plastic locking mechanisms on my awning arms that prevents the arms from falling. Do I need something on the roller tube
to prevent it from unwinding also?
I looked at the link showing the roller tube locking device and picture (for about $50!), But the picture shows that this device would be in the way of my sliding awning arm to be locked in the open position at the extended end of the arm.
