Mine is the same way! Brand new 27HFS and took it out for it's maiden over the weekend. The rear edge of the awning pulled out of the track where it attaches to the camper. I was coming on here to see about fixing it when I saw this thread. No idea why or how it happened, noticed it the first time we put the awning out.

Sure, I can try for one this evening when I get home. It's still airing out after loading up and driving home in a monsoon last night!

EDIT: Wife just took these for me. Camper is one week old and this was the first trip with it. We opened it up fully and I saw it hanging out. Dealer isnt all that far away (about 40 min) but where I have to park at home is a pain to get in and out of. Is this an easy at home fix or will I have warranty issues if I do that?

Simple fix. Roll the awning out about 1 or 2 feet. This releases tension on the fabric. Using vice grips with a little tape around the jaws crimp the channel around the fabric after pushing it back into the channel. The tape will protect the finish. Using a small sheet metal screw, Set the screw through the channel and into the fabric. Your done. I always put screws in both ends of me awnings. Slide awnings as well. Some dealers that are proactive do this during prep.

Seems kind of sad that I have to do this to a 1 week old unit... I guess I shouldnt be surprised, this is my third FR camper and all three had QC issues that should have been caught at the factory.
