Rewinding awning spring

I need to rewind the awning spring on one of the small bedroom awnings. Why? Please don't ask! Does anyone know of a good video or pictorial tutorial to show what is involved? In case the answer is "Take it to a professional", sincerest thanks, but that doesn't work for me. I do 99.5% of all my own repairs/upgrades. TIA

Depends on which awning you have -- Our 07 Camelot has Carefree awnings & on ours, the piece on top of the arm is attached to the arm with a hex screw -- Remove the screw & remove from arm -- That piece is spring loaded, in fact, both ends are spring loaded-- There in an arrow showing which way to tighten -- If you let all tension of the spring, & then tighten 7 to 8 turns,that will do it -- Bill Willard
