Should i focus more on the end attached to the house, or the end out on the roller?

Which one would move easier?

Have silicone lube, as well, but would like to make sure that the next time I borrow the ladder, I can actually move this thing.

On mine, the roller end was the tuff one to slide.....what helped was using 2 Camco deflappers to grab the material and use as handles....

Good idea on the deflappers!

Still have not fixed this. Cannot get it to move either way, at either end, but this week it got pretty warm out, and I was able to get the fabric to stretch a little and move about 1/2 inch in the right direction.



So, would it be ok if I moved it half an inch at the house, and half an inch at the roller, or does it need to be centered on both?


I am nearly confident that I can get the roller end to move on the next warm day, but the entire fabric will then be about half an inch to an inch off-center.

I'd split the difference...then add a screw or poprivet through the double seem area of fabric ends into the roller...the wall side is most likely already pinned, (screwed)....pull those out and slide the material and reinstall

Silicone spray will also help at the roller

Lift roller a little bit to release tension
Work from the "Long end" toward the shore a little (like 1/2 to 1 inch) at a time.

NOTE: some installers will put a screw in it.. I did. To keep it from sliding.

I have waited til very hot days, hoping it will slide, but it won't budge.

Another question....

I tend to tie one end down to the ground from the far outer part of the roller, then the other side I tie down by a rope to the arm in the middle. Does this maybe stretch the outer part by pulling it down, whereas the part pulled down by the arm prevents stretching, so i may have warped the awning?

If so, I may pull down hard on the "loose" side while it is hot outside, tie it down, and see if I can even it out.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
