Awning

Wanting to know how many times u need to turn the awning recoil mechanism to get the awning to retract into storage position on a 2016 coachmen catalina 321BHDSCK. If your facing the trailer, it's the left side that needs recoil in (or turning for tension) and the right side does not turn at all as it has the electrical hookup for the awning. Yes, this is an electric awning. Sorry about that. Please be specific if u truly know

It will open very quickly and when u let go of the out button, it will still proceed a little more and then stop. When I push the In part, it will move very little and then stop. Needs assistance rolling back in. I noticed that when I coiled the end more so than normal, it actually went up further when I hit the In button. I am thinking that the more tension, the more it will spring back up and close.

Hmm I've never heard of that issue.

What brand of awning system does it have?

When I initially unscrewed the awning from the support bar, it unraveled inside (on the left side as ur facing the trailer awning) the length of the awning. There was tension. I unscrewed it because I needed to replace the support bar.

It must be different than my electric dometic awning. I've had mine apart and no spring.

I did have 2 motors that went bad and that's how they both acted.... They would go out okay and then hard to get them back in. They also have that behaviour when the battery is very low.

Can you post a photo of the motor or the place you removed (unscrewed) the support?
Seems you have something many of us have not seen.
