At the conclusion of the 12hrs of Sebring race, when I attempted to close up the small awning on my 155, the rear leg wouldn’t not retract fully.  Eager to leave, perhaps a little over zealous, I forced it down to a height I could confidently drive home.

It’s stuck now.  I can’t extend or contract it any further.

There was a monster wind at one point that sent enormous shade tents 30′ feet into the air without any warning.  I think this same wind might have torqued my awning.  That or some drunk person might have walked into it while I was away.

Do you think it can be saved or should I just contact Carefree of Colorado and order either a new assembly or just the one side?
