I have a 2016 voltage 3895 with 2 carefree of colorado power awnings they will not extend with out me pulling out on the arms. Motor is working and unrolling the fabric. both retract fine. Just wont extend with out me pulling out on the arms
I had a strong gust of wind tweak the arms on my front awning causing the same problem. I just got up on a ladder and tweaked it back. That improved the operation but it still doesn't run in /out as smooth as the rear awning.
You may also want to try a shot of silicone lubricate spray on the rail pins. That stuff works great for everything on the trailer except airing up the tires.
