Yes Gary - That makes sense.

This awning will not be out during heavy rain or wind. Maybe a mist or light rain to cook on the grill, but nothing heavy. This awning is no where near like my manual awnings on my other coaches. I could at least tie down those awnings and not worry about them.

I had them drop out the first time I used the awning. I have kept them waiting to find out what they were for. Glad to know they have a use just how do you manually retract using them??

A label would be helpful, easy and cheap. Maybe Girard might want to think about this. The awnings are used on a variety of coaches.

Entegra probably pulls the rod out of the package because they know we shouldn't be 13' up in the air trying to manually retract the awning in the first place. JMO.

If it means me not moving for four days waiting for a tech to arrive, or alternately, watching while my inoperable awning fills with water and comes crashing down the side of the coach , you can better believe that regardless of weather or height, I will be out there with a battery operated drill trying to get it back in its housing, so someone is going to have to pony up a new one.

I need to check my box of books and see if I have one in there, never thought of it. I have a ladder and a drill, don't know if I have the tool. That would be easier than fighting with the insurance company for a new awning.

Mine was in my kit. Seems that it depends on the dealer that you bought from? Now all I need to know is where it inserts in order to retract the awning.

Bob

By the time you figure that out, I should have a replacement.... Be sure to publish it to the forum

It's not so much the replacement of the awning, it's the paint damage that is done when the awning leaves the coach. In my area and most parts of the country it is hard getting a large coach in for paint. Usually a long trip and several days to repair the paint, then a trip back to pick up the coach.

Another mission, to find the tool and where it goes to retract the awning
