We’ve demonstrated how to replace the fabric on many different awning & slide topper models. A few years ago, we showed how to replace one of the most popular patio awnings on the market – the manual pull-down Dometic/A&E.
We’ve now learned a new way to do the job… a considerably easier method than the old way. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial, as we replace the awning on our friends Tom & Cait Morton’s 5th wheel. Watch the video above to see how surprisingly easy this job is for any reasonably competent DIY RVer (with the help of a couple of friends)! Since we’ve gotten positive feedback whenever we’ve included bloopers, look for a few at the end. 😉
Of course Tom & Cait were rolling cameras too, so you can check out their version of the installation here:
Be sure to check out the Morton’s website and YouTube channel for lots of other great content:
