Slide awning removal

I would like to remove the slide's awning to clean and wax the top of the slide and to condition the rubber seals and bottom of the awning..

Not sure if I can just remove the slide's outside awning brackets and leave the top attached to the coach. That way I can lay the awning and roller on top of the coach and do what i need to do. Anyone have experience doing this?

I had a leak under my slide out awning and did exactly what you suggest. First I ran the slide all the way out. At the ends of the awning tube are holes that I put small screwdrivers in. Then I brought the slide about halfway back in which released the tension on the fabric. It was just a matter of removing the screws from the brackets and laying the awning & tube on the roof while I fixed the leak. After reinstalling the brackets run the slide back out just until there is enough tension to remove the screwdrivers. It's best to have two people doing this.
Good luck

Thanks.That will be my plan sometime tomorrow or Monday.. It will also give me a chance to replace the sealant on the bracket screws.
