    I have a 1993 left hand drive Hymer 564 which I took in to a local caravan service agent to have the fridge serviced because it wouldnt work on gas and the awning was very difficult to rewind.
    They sorted the fridge but told me the awning was broken beyond repair and a new one will be £1000.Has anyone any ideas as to what I can do please can they be refurbished or can you buy second hand I live in the Ipswich area

    Hi,

    If the awning itself is OK, I would suggest you bring it down to us and we will inspect, it could well be just the gearbox and rectification will not be any where near £1000!

    What make is the awning? and what are the symptons of the fault?

    I had an Omnistor and it started playing up, wouldn't retract and lock properly, talked to the Omnistor people at one of the shows and they weren't really helpful.

    Discovered that a lot of debris (leaves, tiny sticks etc) had got trapped behind the front edge where the canvas joins. Cleared all the rubbish out and it worked perfectly.
