TOPIC: slide out toppers

slide out toppers 1 year 1 month ago #26

Yes Joe! On mine I chose (as per Utube video) to widen the fabric groove on the roller tube with a 5/8" drill bit, unroll the fabric, clamp the tube with a vise grip filter wrench, remove screws from the rain gutter holding the fabric, slide fabric out, gave the roller a couple extra turns & reclamped, slid on new fabric, square it up, replace screws, & while gripping the roller release vise grip & slowly allow roller to roll up.
Guy ,Hoosier guy, did his by taking the ends apart I think & retightened somehow that way, maybe he will chime in on how without removing the fabric.

I've been watching & studying the 2 brands & I think if I didn't have them already I'd go with the Dometic, the fabric appears to stay tightened better after a while than my Carefree are/were, just my observation. As far as installtion, with some help & a couple ladders it doesn't look too difficult.

Oh but of course LIPPERT had to get into the awning and slide topper game :) Solera by Lippert!
