Awning - A&E systems Catalina 2500 by Dometic

Does anyone know if I can even get replacement parts for my awning anymore? My assembly arm broke and I need to replace it. I dont Really want to have to purchase a new one.

Do not know if you have curved arms on a Mallard, our arms are curved. But this info should work even with strait arms.

If you do not need curved arms on a Mallard you have more options for fixing your trailer. Complete unit can cost less then fixing vintage setup. Some have gone to trailer factories and saved money.

They make the button on arms replacement kit it includes the rivets needed for repairs. The roller and awning can be replaced as well. Have also done that on our 1978 boler.
Got 3 button assembly's so I have a spare when needed.

Awning - our model is the older - A&E systems 2000 by Dometic can get details on awning replacement.

Had to remove the arm caps from new roller awning assembly and install the caps from old awning assembly. The newer pin is larger, made hole in our old caps match the size, fitting tight like original pin and installed old caps onto the new roller assembly. Also our old unit rolled over cloth going up and new unit rolled under, so had to add a new track for new awning above the brackets.

Your unit is newer and may roll same as replacement and not need track installed for awning replacement. Remember that with strait arms may workout better to replace whole unit on your Mallard.

Vintage Airstreams used same curved arms as bolers. Curved arms are expensive hope you can repair yours. The newer arms are lighter and you would need a pair. If you can not fix yours and you may need to switch roller and cloth due to pin being bigger as well.

Others have had work done at Trailer manufacturing places see other resent notes on awnings. This site.

Hope this helps

Stay well and play safe

[QUOTE=Borden;825622]Do not know if you have a boler,

His profile says Mallard.

Michael; We have a Catalina 2500 awning on our '96 Casita. The arms are all straight. We would also like to know the source of parts if we need any in the future. Someone said to try All Seasons RV Parts and Service in Elkhart Indiana. Another possibility might be Panther RV. Post what you find.

Michael; that looks like what I would call the "leg", sets on the ground or in a bracket on the trailer. When the awning is closed it holds the cover down. Good luck in your search, I don't have any other ideas at this time. Please post if you find a parts source.
