AWNING

[B]Has anybody had problems with their automatic awning with metal case. The one I have has to be pulled slightly by hand on the left side. It seems to be locking up trying to get out of the case. It doesn't take much to pull it, but it shouldn't be this way. ANY IDEAS FOR A FIX? No problem putting it back in.

Thanks

UK/B]

Spray lubricant helped mine. Seems it was catching a little bit before that

You might search the forum there has been a thread on this exact issue most of us have had that issue. Mine went away after several months of use.

Yes there are a thread or two on this and mine has done it since I bought it in October and had dealer do something twice with no results still hangs. From what I have read seems to be a common issue with Dometic which from my experiences is a less then quality minded company to say the least. Good luck and hope you have some success

Deploy it and then center the material on the tube, run it in and out a couple of times and then make sure it is centered and then pop rivet it thru the hem on both ends.

If I understand you, your saying the hardware is hanging up? If so what has happened is your cheap arms got a little twisted. You can realign the way it folds up with a few pushes on it when extended. That's if I understand your problem correctly, been known to be wrong before, But mine will hang up from now and then. It just gets that pop metal tweaked now and then..

99.99% of the time it is due to the material not being centered on the tube.

Centering the material fixed mine ( just like Old Coot suggested )
