Loud screeching sound during awning retrieval
I have a 24RLS. Part way through the first year the awning would make a loud screeching sound that appeared to be coming from the aft end of the awning. The local indy service place decided it was due to the mounting channels being misaligned and they arranged to straighten them under warranty.
Everything was good for a couple times and then I didn't use it for several months over the winter. This year when I cycle it the noise is back, only louder if anything. Not sure what to do now as it is out of warranty. Guess I could take it back to the shop that did the work but I'm not confident in their ability to figure out the cause since they missed the first time.
I was told by the shop that there is no lube required on the awning mech but it sure sounds to me that it needs some. When I look at it it seems that the sound comes from within the awning, not from it sliding in the channels.
