Ahhh... The truth be known now. The "awning
" that you specified in your OP is commonly referred to as a "slide topper
", although, there may be other terms for it. From the description and symptoms as described in your OP, it matched the problem I had with my "awning
" perfectly. Now that we have the correct item described, maybe someone else can provide some assistance as my TT isn't equipped with "slide toppers
...And, no, I've never seen a crank-out slide topper. Logically, it doesn't even make sense. You'd have to crank it in synchronization with the opening/closing slideout. If you forgot to or cranked too fast/slow while the slide is moving, damage could occur to the topper and/or RV.
