Then I'd just wear it out .......one I got is still a 'puppy'. Might bark loud, but only eats little.....I can 'commute' to points East now......cheaply! And, I spotted the awning retainer, just stored in my photo memory bank, thank you.

[QUOTE=smo99;1017826]Hi (again) Guys.

We were coming across Kansas on I-70 last week and hit 50mph cross-winds. The winds were so strong that they got under my awning and unfurled it while we were underway. Amazingly, it didn't rip off the entire thing as we were going 65mph. I got it re-wound (on the side of the freeway), duck taped the thing and got going.

I finally got to a stopping point this week and had time to look at things. The motor runs, the gears all turn, the small shaft going to the 3 inch tube is turning, but its spinning inside the large 3" tube the fabric rolls onto--hence, it won't rewind itself.

Can someone tell me if there's a shear pin inside the 3" tube or something that I can repair?



It could be the motor shaft is turning but the end cap is the problem. If the shaft has a flat side and the end cap has the same flat spot to make the awning roll up the cap metal might be soft and has worn enough to let the motor shaft turn without making the awning roll in either direction.

I fixed a mh with this problem in March by driving a brass rod I flatten to skim into the flat part of the shaft. He has the problem fixed as it was found to be a poor design .
