How Many Times Should Solera Awning Be Wound


I have a 2018 Thor 24-HL with a Solera power awning and the awning deploys much more slowly than it retracts. Im guessing it has a spring to help it retract like my previous manual awning did. If so, is that spring tension adjustable and how much spring tension is recommended? I suspect my spring is a little too tight. Its not stalling, blowing fuses or breaking gears ... yet, and Id like to prevent that if possible. Thank you for your help. Regards,


Helpful Expert Reply:

With Solera awnings you will need to have the awning roller wound a total of fourteen times for proper spring tension. It could be yours was over-wound or maybe the motor is getting weak or your battery isn't in the best shape.
