awning installation question....
I have recently purchased a 2004 Rockwood 5th Wheel (model 8281SS), which was an upgrade from the 1984 Prowler that I had, parked in my RV campground.
From the old trailer, we had removed the insulated awning (hard awning) from that trailer, and would like to install it on the new trailer.
So, we removed the roll out awning, and determined that we needed to move up the awning track about 2 inches, to allow for the trailer door to open.
We have tried researching how to do this (the how is not really the problem, its more the "should"), and haven't come across anyone else who has attempted this.
We have been told that the weight of this awning is not suitable for the Rockwood, and the additional weight that would occur from having snow sitting on it over the winter (I'm writing from Toronto, Ontario)
Can anyone tell me if this is a problem or not? We are extremely nervous to drill holes into the trailer. The existing holes have already been filled.
We are determined to get this hard awning up. We have been spoiled by the lack of pulling in and out of the roll out.
