As far as getting information on your RV's awning you first have to determine the manufacturer and then contact them.

If you are looking for a great RVing How To book you should get a copy of RVing Expert Mark Polk's “The RV Book”. This highly rated book is an excellent reference for everything RVing; in fact it has sold well over 40,000 copies. You can Click Here! to get it along with all of Mark’s other great RVing books.

I hope this helped.
