Awning Fabric Adjustment

I have a 2014 Wildwood 300bhs and was wondering if its possible to move the fabric over 1 or 2 inches. When it rains we are getting rain inside the door.

Yes, you should be able to as long as there's room on the awning tube...doesn't look to be any issue moving it over on the rail end.

Look at how they attached the material to the camper's rail. Mine has a screw at each end. You would have to remove those screws before tugging the material over to the roller end.

You may also need to insert a thin cutting tool into the roller end to cut the plastic rod (and remove it in pieces) to allow the material to slide toward the end. Do not over do it as you will need some space to allow the awning materiel some room to roll up without binding.

Once square and able to roll up without binding; pop rivet the roller end of the awning so it does not shift.

Thanks for the info I'll take a closer look at the screws you mention.
