26rr power awning

So my new 26rr arrived in my driveway today and I love it! I got to thinking with the power awning though. So if you ever have it open on a trip and it just decides not to close back up, is there a way too manually override the motor and roll it up by hand? It's these things that I think and worry about with the modern day convenience of electronics

Yes, there's a way. Not being snotty, but it is the awning's manual. (Read: I don't know how, but I know it's here.)

Oh ok. The trailer was delivered to me in Florida from Ohio and I had to leave for work 15 min later. I didn't get a chance to really read anything. I was just sitting at work pondering things that could potentially go wrong. I have also researched a hundred times tonight so far at least whether I needed a new tow vehicle lol. I have a 2002 lincoln navigator 4wd that has a 8100lb tow capacity...

26rr power awning

8100 is 400 lbs more than GVWR of your new 26rr. These were made to be able to tow with 1/2 ton pickups. Your tow weight is the same as my 2002 f150. I have had no issues with towing mine.

On the right hand side of the awning there is a manual override where you can hand crank it in or use a power drill. I think it's the same size as the jacks.

Are you aware we are talking about a "Awning" a 3/4" Socket is Large for a Awning! I think you are referring to Some Slide units! Youroo!!
