Carefree awning arm slips (2017)


Recommended Posts

One of our Carefree Freedom manual awning arms loses its grip causing one end of awning to be much lower than we'd prefer. Has anyone encountered & tackled this problem without replacing arm? Suggestions?

Thank you!

Chris

No suggestions on the carefree, but we loved that campground,  five or six years ago, on one of our Alaska trips.

Looks better now.

There's a great fish market in town, not far away. Haines packing? Best halibut I ever had. Just off the boat ( we actually came back a few hours later, at the suggestions of the manager, as they needed time to process) with just butter and lemon. Fabulous.

During shutdown they sunk some serious money into this campground. Paved it (it was gravel) every site is full hookup, new clubhouse, laundry, showers, & landscaping. 

Our youngest son lives here & I'll find out about the fish market.

If that stabilizer arm on the Carefree is similar to the Fiama's then perhaps the addition of an oversized washer will help when you tighten it down?
