Awning knob stripped...

Hi all,

One of my awning knobs in my TT got stripped and wouldnt move at all.
I bought a replacement kt and went to saw the old one off .
Now the inside part of the screw and the nut will not come out. It has a star shaped nut.

any words of wisdom?

thanks in advance
Duran

I had a similar problem several years ago. I took the piece that was stuck off from the trailer and then used a rod and a hammer to loosen it up. After a good hit it just fell out. I hope this helps.

thanks Clutch,

the thing is that the part of the knob (screw part and nut) is inside the rail and is loose in the groove. it moves up and down. I just don't have ea way to get it out as it is bigger than the opening in the rail...

If you cannot get a vice grip on it then try a reverse thread removal tool

I had the plastic knob used to turn the screw strip on the screw head on my last 5'er. I pulled the plastic knob off, filled it with some J.B. Weld and put it back on the screw. Never had another problem with it.
