I have an A&E 9000 patio awning with a slight bend in the tube. Last Thanksgiving it caught water in a sudden storm when I was away from the coach. I have been able to straighten about half of the bow, but it still bends about 3-5 inches in the middle. I am looking for advice on how to straighten it further.
I have wedged a board between the M/H sidewall and the tube with the awning extended, and this pushes the tube into proper alignment while the board is in place. This is how I did the initial straightening. I'm afraid to put too much stress on the fabric this way, so a little bow remains.
Any suggestions on how to remove the remaining bow to thighten the fabric short of replacing the whole awning?
