Slide out Awning

My Flagstaff 8528 IKW came with awnings on the slide outs, one over the dinette has become stretched. can I adjust this or do I have to take for service. I asked a service rep and was told the slide will have to be adjusted as well. It is now flapping in the wind and needs to be tightened.

It can be adjusted, one end at a time, and not sure why they told you slide would have to be adjusted. Hard to explain without pictures. Basically remove the awning end from the bracket (the one on the outer slide out wall), being sure to hold on to it where it doesn't unwind, wind a few more turns in it and reinstall. Repeat on other end of slide awning. Might have to extend slide a little for removal from bracket. Depends on model and how it's secured.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
