Ohhhhhhhhhhh Nooooooooooooo!!!!!

Had our awning out to dry, huge wind and rain came and tore the awning off the TT and bent the roll up in half. Was able to get the fabric out but the roll up is toast. any help on finding the roll up tube and instructions on how to replace would be appreciated.

You can count on Murphy's Laws . That is why I always use 4 flopper stoppers and strap down the awnings corners with a tension spring and big spike. Never know when a rogue wind gust will pass thru.

you didn't say if it is an electric or manual awing .... regardless, replacement parts are available at most dealerships .... I'd advise a close inspection by someone who knows awnings .... some damage is easily recognizable, some minor damage to other components can be easily overlooked and impair operation .... replacing most slide awnings isn't complicated but working with the spring in a manual awning can be very dangerous and shouldn't be attempted unless the person really knows what they are doing

I've replace couple that have blown off and fixed a couple others that were damaged. The parts are easy to find online. There really isn't much to them. You just need to be careful of the spring as noted. I believe carefree even has a manual on line that explains things. Its pretty much a 2 man job, but not bad. I've found that the one area where I"ve run into problems is making sure that the side arms that slide together are not bent or tweaked at all. Even a Little bit will cause grief when trying to raise and lower the thing.
Good luck.
