    hi everyone,
    I'm new to all this forum stuff so please be gentle, I have a tribute van lwb with a 3mtr omnistor awning, Ive only used awning 3 times from new and been very careful retracting it, now for some reason when I try to unwind it, its sticking but only the opposite end to winder, that side comes out ok obviuosly I dont go any further! Ive had a look at the problem side ( removed end cover ) but cant see anything obvious, has anyone got any insight as to what is amiss. thanks in advance :Smile: pete

    We had the Fiamma i45 on the last 'van and after the first few uses it stated sticking. All it needed was the front bar adjusting to center it, two nuts either side and a carefull 'jiggle', it had gone about a mm out hence sticking, possibly the same thing with your's, they seem to be a similar construction?

    If it is it would be wise to get a pencile and mark the current possition of the arms to front bar just in case you need to reset/get carried away?

    Any sign of impact damage, bits of twigs etc. have you tried to assist it past the tight point?

    I have had a look at mine and can't see anything to come loose and course a problem, except the knurled knob that secures the support feet.
