weather pro awning

I have been reading for three days now to try to find how to remove the motor on my awning. I have found some info like to make sure to zip tie the arms up . disconnected wires, took the screw out at the top and the 1/4 inch bolt out ,but can not seem to get it apart.anyone know if this should slide out to the right or is there more to take apart. thanks

Hello painter007 and We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck and keep us posted.
I take it that you have the rear torsion spring pinned so the roller tube is locked from rotating. If not you need to do this. There is a hole in the axle and one in the end cap that when lined up a long cotter pin (or similar pin) can be pushed through. Then pull the motor end off of the arm and out of the roller tube.

I envy your mechanical/electrical ability! I have had this POC for 6 years (it came with the new MH) and have had nothing but problems. The sensor has never worked properly and my most recent (unsolved) problem is that it won't retract properly, sometimes not at all unless I use the switch at the control box. When it does retract, the arms don't go back into the channels thus causing it to stop short of being all the way in. I have to use a rubber mallet to whack on the arms to force them into the channel to go all the way in. It's been "fixed" several times and the repair guy always says my problem is because the fabric rewinds crooked, but that he has fixed it. Wrong in both cases. At any rate, I would never recommend this awning to anyone who could not maintain it themselves.

On the roller tube there is a plastic cap, it's held on with 3 POP rivets. Drill them out and pull the assembly out of the arm.

Watched it done last year.
