What kind of awning do I have?

Well my awning support arms bit it in a wind storm earlier this spring. As a result, the little hook clips snapped off where the extension arm clicks/locks into the awning. I'm trying to find parts but have no idea what awning I have. Even worse, when the rv repair place partially unrolled it, they rolled it back up and now the strap is rolled under so I can unroll it!

I have a 2010 Wildwood X-Lite 18BHXL.

Any help, for the part and the unrolling issue, is greatly appreciated!

I can't unroll it to see who the manufacturer is or take a photo of the broken part.

From the distance in your photo, it looks as if it might be an A&E. Try calling Wildwood at (574) 533-5934 and asking for parts and service. Give them the last seven digits of your VIN, found on a sticker on the left (driver's) side of your trailer near the front, and they should be able to tell you what you have.

Got the awning out. It's a domestic. Took pics of the serial number as well as the broken parts. Looks like it will be 2 new extension arms.

I thought that might be the case. As it shows on the label, Dometic makes the A&E System awnings.

Are the parts pretty easy to get and install?

It looks as if the parts should be readily available for your specific model on Dometic's site at https://www.edometic.com/allusr/sp.n...y=9LYSZ8A-NNMU.

As for ease of replacement, I don't know. If you have to work around the roller, the spring tension can be enough to take off a finger, so you'll want to have someone who really knows what he's doing replace the parts.
