“I just want to thank you, the awning fabric fits perfectly and the directions were right on themoney. I will keep you in mind the next time I need something. Thanks again and I really appreciate your help.”
Here's an abridged version of changing out your A&E RV slideout awning material:
Unwrap fabric from roller tube and pin the tube
Remove any screws in the awning rail on your RV which may be securing the fabric
Pull off your old awning
Prepare channel on the RV and the roller tube for your new awning
Slide new awning into rail on RV and rail on roller tube
