9100 power awning

So, Hi Old Coot, so if I have damaged the spring end, I should be able to get the HD torsion spring kit for a 20 foot awning, which includes the spring winding that goes inside the tube, and the grey end cap w/the 3 rivet holes and the roller bearing post and bracket to mount to the existing arm. (52.29) available from Pacific RV parts.
Put vise grips on the bracket and unwind until no more tension counting the rotations, drill out the rivets and remove the old assembly. Other side no spring? Just remove the wire or unplug- slide in new awning material from the back end- gotta fix that end anyway, and put it all back together. RIGHT??

That is correct, but if you already have tension (torque) on the lh end, the spring must still be good. Just be careful unwinding it just in case it isn't broken.

Can anyone tell me how many turns need to be put on the tension springs when putting it back on the camper? I failed to lock mine when I took it off to replace the awning.

This one might help also. I had 11 turns in mine when against the camper and added 2 more for a total of 13. Less strain on the motor retracting.
