Finding a Replacement Part
There are different brands of RV awnings. At the same time, each brand comes with various models, depending on your type of RV. Make sure that you know your awning brand and model before you begin to search. When you've noted those two things down, it's time to start looking for a manufacturer or distributor.
Check with the Original Manufacturer
The first place where you are most likely to find a replacement part is where you bought your RV awning. They will know where you can find the RV awning part that you are looking for because they carry the brand and the model that needs replacement. However, there may be situations when you bought a second hand RV that already comes with an awning. In this case, it would be best to contact the seller and ask about the RV awning's brand, model and where it was bought. Hopefully, the seller will be able to lead you to where the RV awning was purchased from. In the case that the previous owner doesn't know or is unavailable, you can still go to an RV awning manufacturer and they will be able to determine your brand and model.
Visit an RV or RV Awning Shop
RV dealers have connections with manufacturers or shops that offer parts and accessories for RVs. If you are totally clueless, look for a local RV dealer in your area and ask if they can determine the brand of your RV awning and refer a shop that sells replacement parts. This way, you are sure that you'll be buying parts from a reliable or trusted company.
Online Parts Catalog
Before you make any purchase, it would be best to browse through online parts catalog to find the RV awning that you need. You can do this if you know the brand and model of your RV awning. Looking through online catalogs will allow you to compare prices and find the best deal.
