Took the wife and kids state parking a couple of weeks ago and left the 16' awning on my travel trailer ope. A big thunderstorm blew in that night and thrashed it. I've figured out that I just need to by a new roller and vinyl, $405.00 at Camping World, and plan on replacing it myself. The guy at their service counter said that the roller has some springs in it that you have to be careful with and I'd probably be better off paying them the $100 to install it. Anybody ever had to mess with one?
