awning flapping

Our awning is missing about 4 inches of retaining rod as a result it is hanging down away fron the rig, unattached and flapping. It looks like I need to swap the rod. This would be an easy fix if I could find a rod to use. The rig is under warranty but I don't want to drive 3 hours to the dealer and lose it for a month waiting on parts etc. Where can I get this rod?

Can you help with pics of what you're talking about?

Here it is. Without wind the twist in the stitching is the easiest way to see the loose section.

Ah, I think I know what you are talking about. The vinyl "cord" that holds the awning fabric in the gutter channel. I would think window screen cord might work. Look for it at a home center where window screen supplies are sold.
