Maybe of interest to Fiamma owners?

    Just mended my daughters Fiamma wind out awning on her MH.
    Problem was the opposite end to the winding end would not close as it overlapped the end casing, tel. Fiamma who were very good and directed me to their website which showed one way of correcting the problem, however, we tried tightening the screw at the end of the awning as advised but to no avail, then we thought perhaps the bolts fixing the arms to the awning at the legs end of the canvas could have shifted, and after an hour of fiddling with these bolts low and behold the awning now closes properly.
    I expect you all know the above so sorry for wasting your time, but I could not find this fix anywhere.

    Thank you Etap and No! I did not know this trick of the trade. The usual problem that I have encountered is sticking on the way out, followed by a sudden jerk as it releases itself.... I have no idea why. An earlier awning got a tiny bit bent in the middle when kissing a tree goodbye and required a thump when I wanted it to go home.
