2016 32BHDS Awning

The awning and both support arms need to be replaced on my 32BDHS. The Jayco manual says it's supposed to be a Carefree awning, but it's not. I think it is a Dometic. Is there a reasonably priced place I can purchase two new arms and new fabric? How hard is this to do one my own?

It's very hard to do on your own. An ex service tech walked me through some trailers last week. I asked about awning replacement...he said they hate doing that it takes 5-6 people and a lot of sore arms.

My left awning arm is bent and want to either fix or replace, so I'm paying attention to this thread.

My 2015 has a Dometic 9100.

still as strong today as the day I brought it home in October 2014.



My dad did an awning with just himself and my sister - an old style dometic with the stabilizer arms down the side of the camper. Easy Peasy.



My guess is, the powered Dometic may be tougher, and those awful carefree's will be a nightmare.

My neighbor damaged both arms and the fabric was in sad shape. He asked me to look for parts and I found what we needed on eBay plus a replacement fabric from our local RV shop. My son stepped in to help with the project and the 3 of us got it done in a couple/three hours. Search YouTube for how-to vids. If you have basic repair skills, you and a couple of friends can knock it out. There’s not much “rocket science” in these things.
