    we have a omnistor 5000 on our mh and the cover is showing signs of wear, I was wondering has anyone changed the top and is it an easy job. Also where is the best place find it

    When I damaged mine I went to rose awnings. In Poole Dorset. Also mail order. But it wasn't really cost effective as they are quite expensive but the job would have been straight forward so the guy said. I am only going to replace the end caps now and cove the damage with graphics.

    I removed one that was split close to the outer rail, cut off the damaged part, & then replaced it. Lost around 50mm by doing so. It is easy to remove & replace but awkward and heavy to handle. The front rail slides off after releasing the arms then the fabric can be slid out of the roller once the obvious end gubbins has been removed.
