We have a 2016 Crossroads Cruiser Aire and Memorial weekend we noticed that both ends of our awning had pulled away from the camper. We have had our awning out maybe 10 times, and always put it in if any wind comes up. Our sons came to see if they could fix it and all the screws were half falling out. We discovered the only thing holding our awning to the camper is a few screws that are still holding on to the fiberglass, there is nothing behind to attach to. Does anyone have any suggestions?
We tried finding the studs, but they are about 16" from the ends, so that leaves a lot of space to come loose. We did put larger screws with bigger grip, so hoping that helps. Sure would be nice if companies put more integrity along with the higher prices.
Had the same thing happen to my 2013 ST29SS. I believe the root cause was water constantly setting in the track were the screws are. I went with slightly larger screws, caulked the heads, and caulked the molding that's "suppose" to keep the water out. Did that probably 4 years ago and haven't had a problem since.
