July of 19 we had complete new awning installed at dealership. Including arms.
Total times extended perhaps 7! Total days extended 17.
This looks to me like the fabric is shrinking and the tearing at the screws.

When it rolls up it has considerable wrinkles in it. The old one that was on since 2009 was not doing this.

Does it roll up squarely on the tube when closing or does it want to walk towards one end of the tube? Look how one edge lays on the tube when rolled up. Is it stacked onto itself straight and neatly our is it moving towards our away from the tube end as it rolls up?

My guess is it's walking towards the end that has the tear. If so, the wall end wasn't installed square to the tube end.

I don't think the wrinkles should matter. What does the dealer say? Hope they will help if not buy the next one from Carefree.
