Roy, to shorten the awning is a real possibility...I will look at it soon to see how this can be done. Good thought. The problem is rain water pooling up in the center of it if the fit is not taught. In the other thread that I read, the guy put an extra tension rod in the center. Also interesting idea. Thank you for responding.

I just wanted to say thank you again, in regard to the "key" issue. Canadian Tire could not copy my only key, Home Hardware said "nope can't help you"...a locksmith said "don't have the number on the key, can't find a master blank for it...sorry"
Well, well, well, after three tries I give up, this is hopeless. On the advice of another member, I try the forth "key" place. Bingo, she finds the master blank, cuts the key in 2 minutes, and charges me 2.69!!!!! and it worked!

So, to everyone who did not mean to scare the hell out of me, but did...I say keep trying, most of the issues I found owning my new trailer, are not as bad as they would seem.
