He didn't roll it out there but i did when we got home.
I'm glad i didn't buy deflappers as I don't know where they would attach on the frame. Also, I don't know how to "tighten" up the fabric once is rolled out. So far I only do 2 things to roll it out. flip the lever on the end and pull. am I missing a step that tightens the fabric up some?
You need a set of awning poles to tighten it up......
Pm oldcoot as he has previously made them for carefree awnings but not an lci solera.
See if he's interested in helping you.
