My WeatherPro awning doesn't roll up all the way. The arms are about 2 inches from being up tight against the coach. Is there an adjustment to correct this?
On the big slide. There is a velco(?) strip that goes on the top outer lip of the slide. Seems to be protection for the awning from that tip. Mine started to come off & no way to get it back on so I took it off. How important is it to have it on?

You awning fabric may have need to be re-centered on either the rail on the coach or the slot on the awning roller tube. If the fabric moves a little on either of these attachment points the awning arms will not align when rolling up.

I believe I am having that problem. While I have a manual awning, when I tried to roll it up tonite here in Branson, I had a lot of trouble getting it to roll up tight and the rear arms are not aligned. This is the first time since getting this rig that we've had the awning deployed for a week in the hot sun. We've also had some strong breezes and it appears both my fabric and the metal cover have shifted on the rail.

It was a two person job to get mine recentered.
Each person on a step ladders pushing and pulling. Then put a screw throught the fabric into the channel to keep it from moving..Winnie seems to leave the screws out...Good Luck...
