Awning will not completely retract on front rail

Hello. I have a 2014 sunseeker 3050s with a domestic electric power awning. Today, the front awning arm will not completely retract and ‘lock’ the awning flush to the Rv. The rear awning arm appears to be operating properly. It worked great yesterday. Today it opens, closes, etc but will not ‘lock’ the front arm. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

I have had a similar problem with mine, seems like the fabric moves off center a bit causing it to not roll up evenly. Check that, you should be able to shift it back to center by tugging it one way or the other.

I thought I check before but when I went back and looked from the top you are correct. It appears both ‘rivets/screws’ holding the front edge to the rv were gone and awning had moved about an inch on the Rv rail edge. No change on the barrel. Missed checking both ends. Anyway that’s for the reminder. Now, how do I reattach? Are there special awning rail rivets/screws or Will any 2 (appropriate sized) screws do the job? Thanks again
