Omega II slide topper instructions

I am ready to replace the fabric on two of my slide toppers. I have the Carefree instructions but it's not specific enough on installing the fabric, including number of turns on the spring, what position the slide-out should be in when the spring is adjusted, etc.

Any info on this will be greatly appreciated!

OMEGAII
HOW TO CHANGE A SPRING ON AN OMEGA II:
(Left Spring, part number R00731)
Remove the case covering the roller tube.
With the slide open, facing the coach,
using extreme caution, remove the bolt in the lower left arm. This will allow you to remove the arm from the mounting bracket on the face of the slide. Helpful hint: Put a piece of tape across the bottom of the arm to keep the arm plug in place.
If there is tension on the spring, unwind the tension using the arm as leverage. You will need to pull the arm out of the roller enough for the arm to clear the room while rotating the arm.
Drill out the two rivets in the roller tube.
Pull the spring, bushing, and arm out of the roller tube.
Detach the old spring from arm.
Put the new spring into the roller allowing about 6" of the spring to be exposed. Slide the bushing over the spring into the roller. Attach with rivets. Engage the arm to the spring.
Making sure that the arm will slightly clear the room, turn the arm in the clockwise position. Please refer to the spring wind chart for the correct tension. Once completed, slide the spring and arm completely into the roller tube and re-attach the arm to the mounting bracket.
ADDING TENSION ON AN OMEGA II:
Remove the case covering the roller tube.
With the slide open, facing the coach,
using extreme caution, carefully remove the left arm from the mounting bracket on the face of the slide. Helpful hint: Put a piece of tape across the bottom of the arm to keep the arm plug in place.
Making sure that the arm will slightly clear the room, turn the arm in the clockwise position to add tension using the arm as leverage. Please refer to the spring wind chart for the correct tension.
Re-attach the arm to the mounting bracket.
Re-attach the case.

If your only going to change the fabric, and the tension on the existing fabric is ok. Then you only need to lock the roller in the correct position on both ends while you slide the fabric off the roller and down the track on the RV. There are plenty of youtube videos that will show you how to do it.

You don,t want to mess with springs if you don,t have to. They are under tension and can hurt you if you don,t know what your doing.
