fickle awning

The retractable awning on my new 233s is being fickle all of a sudden. It will just stop in the middle of extending or retracting. It just started doing that this weekend. Any ideas?

Check to make sure the material is centered on the roller. If it isn't, center it and then pop rivet it on both sides AFTER you determine that was the problem.

Fickle awning

Mine seemed sticky last time out and got much better after lubricating all the joints.
