Fiddle with it!!  up!

It is a weird fitting, and not easy to describe. You have to push the winder in, turn it a little bit (but I forget which way) then ease it out again and it will engage.

Once you've got the knack it's still a pain in the rear, but at least you know what to expect. I think (assume??) the unusual fitting is so you can leave the winder dangling if you want the awning out for only a short time??

Hope this helps a bit.

I've had three Van's with that Omnistor awning. Just put winder in slot and turn clockwise to open and anti to close. If it's not that simple there is a fault.

Hi Patrick
I have an used recessed awning from on of my previous vans a 09 Nuevo EK es, I replaced it due to the awing sheet creasing on re winding the awning back into its casing .
You are welcome to take it away for spares if you cannot solve your problem with yours.Send me a P.M  if you want it .
To big and heavy to ship.

I use mine very little but it does need tight winding in before giving it a half turn out so that the panel on the side lines up with the body. If it's not tightly wound then the panel slips out a bit when you go on a bumpy ride.
Hope this helps
