Awning cord

We have a Avenger Touring Edition27RLS. The cord in the awning roller keeps coming out. The first time,last summer, I was able to take vise grips and push it in about 5 inches. I did this while the awning was extended. Now it is about a foot out. It comes out toward the back of the TT. Is there an easier way to push the cord back in? How do I keep it from coming out ? We are newbies as of last summer. We are retired and live in it fulltime. DW says HELP.

If you relieve the tension on the fabric by supporting the roller at both ends with it extended it makes pushing the rod back in easier.

Once you have it back in, and the awning fabric lined up correctly, place a small screw through one end of the rod into the roller. That will keep it from sliding out in the future.

Since it's a nylon cord, I would get some PVC rod and try to replace it. You could pull the cord out one end as you slid the rod in the opposite end.
