Just did it yesterday, position slide about 6" from side of trailer, remove screw in the hex tube holding the awning bracket on the roller, remove 2 screws holding hex shaft in slide bracket, grasp roller bracket and move hex shaft out of bracket (keep ahold of roller bracket, it wants to turn), turn the roller bracket the no. of turns you want(against the torsion) and re-install on hex shaft and secure with the 3 screws that were removed. Takes about 10 minutes on each end.
