WeatherPro power awning issue

My awning suddenly is not rolling up correctly. Once rolled the arms are not closing over the vertical supports so it doesn't close all the way. I noticed the fabric has wrinkles or pleats in it and looks like it's shifted forward towards the front of the coach. I'm guessing it has to be pulled back into place so the tension is even again. Anyone else ever have this problem and how did you fix it? We are heading out next Friday and I can't move it like that for sure.

I had the same problem with mine. There should be a screw at each end of the awning where it attaches at the roof rail. Remove the screws and you can slide the awning fore-aft to realign.

This is exactly what happened to us. Just had it fixed at a Rv repair place.
The awning is creeping over because the plastic long gimp rod is shifting and breaking. It means taking off end caps and removing the awning from bottom.

I don't know where you are going but roll it up, being careful to push arm over to align everything. When you get to somewhere you will stay for a while and call the local RV mobile repair.

I just noticed, it electric. Very difficult to fix yourself. You will need 2 people to get it closed to travel.

Ours does the same, every few years it has to be repositioned.

So where are these screws that need to be removed? Top tube or bottom? Do you have to take tension off the awning?

Fore and Aft where the awning material attaches to the roof rails. The material can be moved by tugging towards the aft. You may need to re-center the metal shield. Gently hold a block of wood against the shield , hit with a hammer. We fought it for a while and settled for "close", it appears the arms were not installed squarely.

They are at each end of the weathershield, which is attached to the awning rail along the side or top of your MH. See the bottom of page 10 of the A&E attachment. The awning should be deployed when working on it. After you remove the 2 screws, slide the awning fore or aft at the awning rail to help square it up. Retract/deploy the awning several times to help with fine tuning. After you think it appears correct, then replace the 2 screws.

I found the awning moved in the grove of the "roller tube;. I unrolled the awning completely, noticed the distance from awning edge/arm bracket, at roof line was different then edge at "tube"/arm. . I just pulled the awning at the "tube" to position it square, and it rolled up properly
