    Hi Bing

    Also from the North East so welcome. I think I am right in saying that the awning does not actually wind out but drops out when you take the winding in tension off it. Ours was reluctant when we got it so I just eased it out by hand once I had wound it out a couple of turns and then gave it all a bit of oil where it slides. It can still be sticky but I just wind it in tight and then back it off hoping it drops out.

    Don't know if that helps.
