Anyone else have this problem? I have the standard A&E awning on my new Georgetown. I had an A&E awning for about 17 years on my old coach, and never had a mechanical problem of any kind, other than a realignment or two. Last weekend, third trip out with the new coach, I was adjusting the awning when the plastic rivet that "locks" the handle to the arm broke. An examination of the piece showed that it is flimsier than the parts in most Chinese toys. While at the dealer for warranty repairs, they opened the awning to take a picture, and the same piece on the other arm broke. The dealer has ordered two new arms for the awning, and promised they will be of a higher quality. This certainly seems a bit cheap and flimsy for a normally quality product.
