Carefree Freedom III (label shows Omnistor) awning does not

Customer Question

Carefree Freedom III (label shows Omnistor) awning does not retract Fabric - My airstream parkway Motorhome is totally stuck at apartment parking lot where I tested / pulled out fabric for several days. Rollers retracts fabric by 1-2 rolling when I rolled using a crank (counter-clock wise rolling) then does not roll the roller anymore. It sounds like set of two gears are not aligned so keep losing a power to retract. I found a little part came when I pushed hard but not sure this small part is causing a problem. Pls help!

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
This sounds to be a possible fault with the control motor(s) for the retractable awning itself.I have seen some of these fail before in the past needing replaced.
Without seeing what is actually occurring here it is difficult to fully pinpoint the fault.If you can you might see if you can locate a mobile RV technician in your area to examine and repair this here.
Thanks Pete
