Dometic awning grey plastic broken

During my inital closing which I did all wrong this thing got broken. Does it have to be replaced? What is it called or better yet the part number? Where can it be purchased? Thanks

my awning does not have that clip so am thinking it must be something for anti rattle would be my guess

PPL motorhomes has an online parts diagram but you need to know the complete model to see the diagrams for the correct part InvalidBrowser

contact A&E awnings and see if they'll send you the part.
yours looks to be an A&E. they're a division of Dometic, i think.

Most RV dealers carry them. Takes about 2 minutes to replace, per side. Camping World has them, maybe even your local Wal Mart. Side rail locking tab, sorry, don't have a part number.

Is it broken or did it just come apart. It is 2 pieces with a spring that interlocks togather. I popped mine the first time I used the awning on the old Wildwood. It both sides did not pop check out the other side. It holds the brace that tightens the awning.

Most likely fits all the A&E Awnings.

Sounds like you are going to get by with a few cheap parts. The first awning experience we had was replacing the whole arms on both sides. Just had set it up, and a gust of wind caught it and sent it over the top. That was on a hybrid we owned.

Yes the plastic broke when I tried to close this for the first time. The manufacturer sent me a part number and a cost. The ones on the auction site come in two pieces and the one I broke was one piece as used and two pieces when broken. Well from reading above maybe it was two pieces. I know I lost the spring since I thought it was one piece. Your advice is right on! Thank you all so much for the data.
