Awning out of alignment

I think I saw a thread on this before, but it was awhile ago and couldn't find it. When putting the awning in on my 3170 both sides will not go all the way in. I'm thinking maybe the material is off coarse a little and when bars are almost in they hit the guides and stop before going all the way in. Is there an easy way to adjust it?

I ran into that problem with mine. It must have loosened somewhere because I was able to eventually guide it in by hand, while the DW held the button. Since it was under warranty, I brought it to them and had them tighten up whatever it was that was loose.

I'm afraid I don't know exactly what it is they tightened, but check all the bolts, pins, and whatnot to see if anything's out of whack.

I had this problem , very easy fix
Measure the distance between the fabric of the awning and the arms...on the trailer side, where it's connected to the trailer.
Chances are , it is more to one side.
Mine was 1 3/4" more to one side...take the screws out at the end holding the awning fabric in place, and pull it back so that both sides are equal and screw it back.
Been over a month now, and everything is working great.
Hope it works good for you !

If the material is equidistant between the arms on the trailer, DO NOT MOVE the material at the trailer, INSTEAD deploy the awning and center the material on the tube and pop rivet both ends through the hem to secure it from moving again.
