Awning electric

Hello members

I have a short question. What is the best way to line up the fabric so it closes correctly

My question too is why does it need alignment? accident, wind, Its done by sliding the fabric in the awning tube or the track on the coach, first remove the pop rivet or screw that holds it in place. maybe you will see where it moved and why. Good luck

Extend the awning fully and pull one end or the other of the fabric at the tube end to align fabric equally on roller tube.

Once aligned, pop rivet (one end of the fabric) in place so you won't have to align it again.

It would be nice to have to think about an awning this time of year, but for some of us we're still covered & in snow mode.
