Dometic 9100 20' Awning Tension Winding

Recommended Posts

I replaced the fabric on my awning and was attempting to slowly unwind the tension spring and it got away from me. Ate my hand up pretty bad. So needless to say I do not know how many times it was wound.

The 9100 has one tension spring on the left end (looking at camper) and motor on the right. I have read several posts and get conflicting information.

1.  Says with the roller in place, extended out about 1 to 2 feet from the camper, detach the spring end and wind 13 turns, pin it so it does not release, reattach to arm, remove pin.

2. Say 13 turns but sound like they are starting at the fully extended position, rather than 1 to 2 feet out from camper.

If I did the math right, or close, if you go by the first method, the spring is going to wind tighter another 6 turns or so when you extend the awning out fully. The second way its jsut a max of 13 turns fully extended.

So do I go by the first or second method.
