I got these instructions from my awning users manual. You will need a pull strap. One came with my rv. It is black, about 1" wide. One end has a small round gray plastic piece and the other has a loop. Some where in your rv, you should have a small rod about 3' long with a round bend a 90deg bend. The bend is for the strap. You will need these to control the awning when you put it back up. It is spring loaded.
You will need to loosen the screw shown and with the help of a partner, pull the awning down. This will will put tension on the awning and you guys will need to control it.
When fully extended, place the pull strap in the tube groove. This will give you something to hang on to. Now you can see the manufactures sticker with the model and serial number.
Using the rod, slowly roll the awning into its stowed position. Re install the screw.
Be advised, I was told not to drive the rv because the awning could unspool at speed, thus the safety recall.
I have never had to do this but being familiar with manual awning, this is what I would do..
