Slideout awning droop

Is there a way to tighten the tension of a slideout awning? The one over my kitchen tends to fill with water and sag when it rains.

I did a search on YouTube, but all I find is replacing or installing new awnings, not repairing an existing one.

About 30 minutes ago I replaced mine due to tearing at seam. I'd think that it would need removed and roller wound around another time then reinstall. This would put more tension on it.

My neighbor uses large inflated beach balls under the awning. Works great for them.

I believe someone on this site made a support to stop that sag using PVC pipe. Sorry, but I don't know where that topic is.

I really don't want things like beach balls and supports. That may well for a rig sits for long periods of time. I would rather fix the actual problem.
