Carefree awning light issue and repair
The Carefree awning installed on my ACE had a plastic track near the top edge of the fabric that held an LED light strip. The problem was that the light strip was coming out of the track. I just got at trying to do something about this but when I got up on the scaffolding to work on it I found that the stiches holding the track to the fabric had rotted to the point that I was on good windstorm away from having the track ripped totally free, nearly 25% of the strip was already lose and when I touched it a bunch more stitches came lose. Then a light tug puled the rest of the track down off the awning. The track was extremely brittle, stiff, and warped. I carefully removed the light strip from the track and attached it to the side of the coach about 2" below the awning rail, I used double sided tape to stick the led strip.
