Door awning stuck

Door awning stuck. Extends 2-3” and stops. Retracts no problem. We’re traveling so I don’t want to start taking things apart. Anyone have this happen?

Have you tried having someone pull on the arm(s) when extending?

If you have adjustable arms you 'may' have forgotten to loosen the knob when retracting and now it is bound up when opening.

Mine make a bit of a bang when opening at about the 2"-3" mark. That is the point it overcomes the gas shock.

You don't have a signature line, so I don't have any idea how old your unit is. But I've had a couple of class A's that have had travel problems with the door awning. Long story - short. I found to spray some lubricant on some moving parts of the mechanism cured my problems.
With it only opening 2-3 inches it may not be enough for you to be able to lube anything.

17 Berkshire. When I find a tall enough ladder I’ll check it out.

As the other folks have mentioned, I’m betting you either have an arm(s) binding or the material is bunched up on the roller.

Have you contacted Carefree of Colorado the manufacturer of the awning? The memory circuit on your unit might have lost its setting and needs to be reset. There are 2 buttons on the left side that control the in and out position. PM me your email address and I will forward you a copy of the instruction manual for the door awning.

Or you could be a really nice guy and upload the manual to the forums Library section if the manual isn't there already so everyone who needs to can download it.

I have it as a PDF but do not know how to add a pdf file to this forum.

Would do it if told how to.

It's actually pretty simple if your on a computer.

Click on the Library in the light green bar at the top of the forum page.
Click on Category. Click on Add under the dark green bar. Fill in File Name, Author (usually the manufacturer name), fill in a brief description.
Click Browse to search your computer for the file you want to upload, then click Add File.

Mmnsc , good advice. On the road and has become a low priority so it’s now a “round tuit” I might even dig thru 50 lbs of manuals for the C of C. Thx.
