Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

The strap may have been broken or just flipped up out of sight. Flip the lever to the "down" position and then get someone on each arm and pull them out away from the coach. Once you see the strap you can grab it with the awning hook.
