Seems we're trying to diagnose a changing problem. Deploy the awning and see if the material is centered on the tube.

Grey9712: That did the samething on mine . I took the cover off the motor on the R/ side of the awning and cleaned the motor connections and that I greased all the awning hinges . That helped me & hope it will help you. Just a thought.

If you have a "reverse operation" I think the "extend" switch was held and reverse rolled the awning. The awning switch does not have a built in stop so if it is held in the "extend" position it will just keep the motor running until it re-rolls the awning in the opposite direction. Just extend the awning until it gets to the point it is completely extended then use the "retract" position and all should be good.

Will that not wind the torsion spring the wrong direction?

If the awning was extended to the point that it started rolling up in extend mode, the awning material would be wound up 'under' the roller.

Don't think I would do the re-rolling. Just roll it out and reverse the leads on the switch.

Probably best to have dealer or someone who can trouble shoot problem look at it. Too many unknowns to really tell what has happened.
