    We unwound the awning so far and it started to go screw wift so I wound it square again and fiddled with it it would only wind in not out so I wound it all the way in so I could use the van but it will not come out at all ?

    any ideas what is wrong how to fix it do I need a gallon of petrol and a match?:Rofl1:

    I could find nothing on the internet and before anyone asks its fitted to the van 3.5 mtrs long and all the other details are inside the :swear::swear: thing :Doh:

    I thought after years of swearing at caravan awnings this was all in the past:Eeek:

    try unwinding a little to take tension off the fabric and arms and put a thin hook into the awning closure seam and give it a gentle pull. had a problem on our last van awning would not come out, thats what i did and was then able to unwind and do adjustments.

    good luck:thumb:

    I went to Rose Awnings this morning a young man there looked at my stuck awning as soon as I asked if he could help.What a wonderful service I had from this company he stripped it all down completely sorted it out and lubricated some catches inside,he found the reason it had gotten in a mess and fiddled with something it now works properly I am very pleased with the service I had and the fact he did this straight away while I waited.

    WELL DONE ROSE AWNINGS:thumb: thank you Dan

    I agree, I have to give a gentle pull on my awning to get it to come out. Don't know why I should have to, but what the hell it works. :Smile:
