Awning Strap Rolled Up In

While I was away DW tried to fold up the awning due to some wind gusting. She lost control, the strap burning her hand as it rolled up trapping the pull down strap inside.

Any ideas on undoing the deed?

Just flip the lever to open and roll it down by hand. You can do it yourself by standing on a ladder in the middle or you can try using two people to just pull the arms out on both ends.

Been there done that. Its an easy fix if its a Carefree manual awning like the one on my coach. I moved the latch to the open position, unclipped the arms from side of the coach (bottom of the awning arms latch to the coach sides) pulled the arms down extending the awning. When the awning was exended I clipped the arms back to the side of the coach.


Took less time to do it than to write about it. Now I ensure that the awning strap remains under control.
