Sierra awning issue

Does anyone with a 365SAQ Sierra have a bow in the awning roller. I has been noticing that when my awning is out it would sag on the middle and when it was rolled in it was wrinkled, not rolled smooth like it was when I bought the unit. I had it out today and noticed that when it is extended properly the roller bows in toward the camper causing the issue. My unit is a 2014 model. Thanks.

Could be the same awning.

Thanks for the website. That is exactly what it looks like when rolled up. I will have to check with FR about it. RV is only 2 months old.......

I think you would do better if you contact the awning MFG.

OK. Good idea. I'll get the model number from it and give them a call. Can't hurt.

It's pretty much going to be a fact of life with a 21' awning. Mine is the same way. They make awning supports, but I don't think they work with a power awning. Mine does roll up tight, (no gapping), but has the wrinkles in it.

I have the same issue. Although does roll tight is wrinkled and offset a bit in the roller. It has even slightly flexed both supports to the right when rolled up with the pressure. Functions fine and I think what is said is correct, with awnings this size they are going to sag in the middle somewhat.

According to a couple of RV dealers around here, any awning over 16 feet need a center support to keep them from bowing. I had one on my 355QBQ and this is the one I put on my 3655SAQ.

Nice and looks like a good idea. I'm assuming this is only put in place when the awning is closed? Looks like a keyhole style mounting. Other question is where did you buy? Thanks

Now that I look closer I guess it's permanent and looks like it tilts as the awning opens and lifts back up as it closes. Correct?
