Carter Awning brace replacement?
On my 1991 Holiday Rambler Alumi Lite I have a Carter awning. There is nothing wrong with the system, it works OK. However, I am getting older and now have a very hard time locking/unlocking the folding braces. To lock the braces in place, you need to push up at the elbow until the spring type locking pin engages, then to fold it, you have to push the pin into the body of the brace until in unlocks. It is a Carter Mark VI system, and yes I know that this company is long gone. What I am wondering, can any of the extending locking braces from other makes replaces the folding braces. Sure would make life easier. Anybody have any experience with Carter Awnings?
