Duration:   12  mins

Manual awnings are fairly easy to operate, even with one person. Knowing the proper procedure is important to reduce binding and fighting a locked arm knob or locked fabric roller tube assembly (FRTA).

Awnings require very little maintenance, however it’s a good idea to lubricate the locking mechanisms and any moving arms with silicone spray lubricant. Allow the awning to dry before rolling it up, otherwise mold and mildew will form. Clean the awning periodically and condition the fabric with an approved conditioner once a year to keep it moisture resistant.
