A & E Two Step Patio Awning

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Winnebago Adventurer with a manual Dometic Two Step awning.

When retracting the awning is very slow in closing. I have to use the metal pull down hook tool to nudge it to start retracting. Is there a recommendation for lubricating the roll up springs to aid in a smoother and quicker closing.

Thank you.

I see no one has answered your post so I am going to give you a link to a service manual for 8500/9000 Dometic Awnings. I am not able to find any lubricating instructions for the torsion assemblies. You may want to save this link as it also covers a lot of other RV appliances. Bryant RV Repair manuals


1. Make sure the top and bottom bracket screws are tight

at the start of each camping season.

2. Lubricate the rafter arms and support arms using paraffin

wax or silicone spray. Also lube the threads on knobs.
