I'll have to say that is the first thing the dealer tried but to no avail. Still hangs on one side from time to time and this is also after new struts and some kind of supposed helper bumpers as well as enough lube to do a change on my diesel. Based upon so many people with the same issue and same supplier Dometic I would say more of an issue with the product but that could just be coincidence.

Once it is centered, it has to be pop riveted, otherwise it will slip to the side again.

My material is centered and pop riveted down on both ends, even both awnings. Mine will still hang up The only way I can correct it is by pushing it over so the cap go's over the rail attached to the trailer ( the part the motor is attached to). It always hangs on the side that I tilt it to, so Maybe I'm tilting the cheap arms to much. Once I push it over it rolls all the way in. That's my experience with it hanging up and not closing over the channel attached to the unit. It will stick out on one side about 11/2" to 2" never measured it. It's easy to tweak those arms I have found.
