Opening the awning on 1992 t 1550

Can someone explain to me how to open the awning as I am a newbie or better yet have a video on how it is done?

Your awning is likely a standard A&E product. You can find instruction sheets, parts lists, and more at the manufacturer's websites.

There's also a section in the FILES area (tab near the top of your screen) on awnings. Tips & tricks, Maintenance, and User Guide are all there waiting for you.

Just an update.. I found that my awning is a Faulkner awning. Quite difficult to get it figured out but we did do it. Missing some parts but nothing major. Thanks for the advice and if anyone has any parts for a Faulkner awning please let me know. Thanks!

Ah ha! The older Sunlines, and especially the smaller ones, didn't necessarily come with awnings from the factory. I seem to recall Faulkner was a big name in the late '80s/early '90s, so it was probably dealer installed when the trailer was new.

I think there was a guy on Craigslist in Central or South New Jersey who had faulkner parts listed under the Recreational Vehicles category.

Yes, he is still there. Do a keyword search for faulkner awnings in Central NJ under Recreational Vehicles by owner.
