    Last time out in Winnie it rained so much that our awning couldn't clear the water fast enough. Sadly we were away from it, but returned to find it collapsed.
    One of the arms has broken at the joint and the awning itself as ripped. I reckon the awning is repairable but don't know about the arm, unless anyone knows where I might get parts?

    If it is a Fiamma awning call one of our shop staff Matt, Darren, Nic, Jon or Lynda and have a chat to them as they will be able to answer all your queries easily on 01-580-883062.

    We can supply all Fiamma spares

    If the lines are busy you can also ring Jan at our Hastings warehouse on 01424-437525 and ask her

    Regards

    Had a chance to look at the RV today the make of the awning is GH it has a serial No. 0108 but that's about it.
    I have emailed the awning company and am awaiting a reply, fingers crossed.

    :Sad::cry:Bad news, my awning is no longer made, as the arms are now a different size, and wont work with the gearbox fitted to mine.
    Well I certainly won't be forking out for a new one. May have to fabricate a soloution of some sort.
