Thanks for the replies...... this was about the simplest thing I've done on this unit so far. I guess I was thinking the tensioner was attached to the motor, but it's at the other end. Other than strapping the roller up, and letting the arm do it's thing.....opening, I can pull the arm back into place even with the gas shock attached. With awning rolled up there were no stickers visible.
