    Hi everyone

    We're on our hols and have a slight issue, our awning has stopped fully winding in. Here is a photo:

    We've been using the awning every day in the hot sun and wondering if something needs adjusting .

    Does anyone know what/how to adjust the awning so it will wind in 100%?

    It's a Fiamma zip 4M zip awning

    Thanks in advance

    There is a pdf file available here that should sort it.

    Thanks chaps :) I'll download the PDFs when the campsite wifi is back up and running to avoid roaming charges on the download , posting this from my phone.

    Thanks :)

    I had the same problem cured it by adding a small piece of gaffer tape near the roller at the edge of the side that wasn't rolling in enough. I had to experiment with how much ended up with a piece about 4" long.

    Note that the red telltale going in doesn't signify any sort of lock just that it is all the way home.
