I am an idiot. Guess I hit a tree limb or something and it tapped my awning bracket. See that it is slightly off track. It closes fine, but would like to figure out how to adjust it so it is back on track.
Appreciate any help!
Many responses seem reasonable to me, but I noticed something in the pictures you posted that became a problem that is irrelevant to your problem for us on our Rockwood. One of the lag screws holding the top bracket in place came loose allowing the bracket to twist resulting in the pop rivets breaking that hold the awning on the camper. We could have ended up traveling down the Interstate with the awning dragging along on the berm of the road--you'll have to imagine that since it never happened.
I looked over a lot of other trailer awnings and noticed that the majority have lag screws installed in both top and bottom holes in the brackets, visited our dealer and had them repair the rivets and install 4 more lag screws in the available holes. I'm assuming the installer was tired the day my trailer was built or only had 4 lag screws in his pouch at the time
In your case, it may also be that the "collision" may have caused somewhat loosened brackets to twist allowing the damage to occur as well.
