Recently cut the corner too tight and caught our left hand power awning arm; see attached picture
I'm planning to replace this arm myself and would appreciate any thoughts on do's and don'ts. It is understood that the tension is applied on the right side, and the need to insert a pin; is there any need for a similar step on the left side? Early thinking is to have someone support the awning roll while I remove the LH arm, keeping the awning retracted. My concern extending the awning is the damaged arm may not support the left side when extended. Thoughts?
