Awning not retracting straight

My awning is not rolling on straight. Once it is up it is wrinkled and one end is not firm against the TT. How do I fix this? Is it just to pull on the awning where it connects to the TT to adjust side to side?

Deploy the awning and center it on the tube and then pop rivet it in place.

Old Coot, so I should adjust it at the tube and not at the rail on the top of the trailer? Rivet in place, great idea, thanks..

The awning should be already centered at the trailer between the uprights and a screw in each end. All you need to do is to center it on the tube when it is deployed and rivet it in place.

Roll the awning up and watch which way the fabric travels, left or right as it rolls up and then slide the fabric in the roller until when rolled up the fabric does not walk left or right. The fabric might not end up being centered on the roller, but make sure it stays aligned while rolling up then rivet it to the roller.
