Default Roadtrek Awning Support Arms

When we bought our 2010 Roadtrek 210 Popular a couple of years ago, it was missing the support arms for the awning. Does anyone know where I can get a set of them? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Normally, the end ones would be built into the awning and fold or the front edge of the awning. They would clip onto the catches on the van or you can stake them to the ground. The center awning top support and crank are stored loose in the van.


Best to go to the Roadtrek site and download a manual to see how it all works.

Default Awning supports

The end supports fold out but are not long enough to fasten to anything. The coach has two brackets, one near the front and one near the rear of the side. It appears there should be two loose support arms that clip into them. Ido have the crank, just no support arms. Will try to check for a manual online, as what we have is a loose leaf from the previous owner and doesn't cover the awning.
Thanks

As it turns out the manual doesn't cover the awning, I just looked.


This one is similar but without the center canvas support.





When you crank out it will just hand down a ways on the two arms, you then unfold the two end ones and they should have a black knob in the center to loosen so you can extend them long enough to reach the ground or van side.

If booster's video doesn't work for you, I guess it's always possible that the adjustable extentions could have been removed before you bought your van.

In that case I'd contact the awing manufacturer.

Fiamma awning legs are extendable and are hidden inside the awning, follow the instruction on the video.

I'll check the arms on the awning. Didn't see a way to extend but wasn't looking for that at the time. Next few days when I get to where it is stored, I will see what they look like.

We had a Fiamma awning on our previous Sprinter-based Great West Vans. Really like driving the Roadtrek better, I tow a Kia Soul, so we have some flexibility on the road.

Thanks.

All Fiamma awnings are very similar, you had one on your previous RV so I must conclude your current awning is not by Fiamma.

If it is a Fiamma Awning, they are located in Orlando Florida and have replacement parts. We got our awning parts from them there.

I don't know what era RT used the Fiamma awning, but my 2012 190P has a Thule awning. Here's the tag info.

I don't think this one is a Fiamma. The one on our previous GWV had the Fiamma name on it. Will check to see if there is a manufacture designation somewhere on this one.
Thanks

I have a Carefree awning. I works basically the same way a the Fiamma in the video. A small (and I think insignificant) difference is my Carefree secures the extension arms via a orange friction tab that flips to hold the extension in place, rather than a black twist-knob that tightens. Really the same process.

The Roadtrek brochure for 2010 lists a Fiamme, but they had a history of being wrong on literature so certainly not guaranteed correct.


On edit, I found several references from users that said their Roadtreks in the 2010 era had Thule awnings. I looked at the Thule site and the supports looked to be the same style, though.

Some good possibilities for me to check soon. I may not need the extra supports but discovering the awning manufacturer should provide the answers I need.
Thanks to all.

I couldn't find instructions for the Carefree on my RT190P. I could see the legs but for the life of me couldn't figure out how to free them from the case.

A short phone call to Carefree was all it took. They answered right away and talked me through it. Great customer service! I'm sure they can supply replacement parts if needed.

Default Awning supports

I checked and our awning is labeled Omnistor 5002. Checking online, apparently this brand now is owned by Thule. I wasn't able to find anything on parts or a manual for this model, only later ones.

The one on our coach has a set of scissors arms that fold out from the housing and support the awning as it extends. However, they do not proide any vertical support at all. There are no arms under the housing that would fold down for this purpose. The coach has two brackets that look like arms would fit into them, and the housing has a small round cap under each end where it appears the upper end of a support rod might fit. See photo of one of the brackets attached.

Does anyone have a manual or even the same type of awning and could share copies of photos or drawings of any support arms? I suspect Imight have to improvide with some telescoping poles, but I'm not sure how to fit them into the brackets on the coach.

For an owners manual, just Google Thule RV awning. It doesn't matter what the model number is, except some are deployed with a 12V motor. I believe Thule awnings are owned by Lippert (LCI), which owns about everything in the RV subcoponent market. Your arms are stored in the deployed awning head. I'll take a picture after the wind dies down here in FL.
