"But my Funtime Repair Ship Said........."
Hmmmmm. I thought there was a tension spring in the idler asm. because my Funtime repair shop said my awning drive motor was weak and my tension spring was stripped out. But that was 2 months ago and repair parts still aren't here. If there is no spring, I may try reversing the wires to the motor to see if that works. But they have worked on it twice; if that was a fix, you would think that they would have tried it. Thanks for your info about the spring, though; I'll try wire reversal. Oh, and it is an LCI.
