Hello

Is it a large awning, ours is 5m long and in the center of the housing, against the van, there is something like a metal ramp that helps lift the center of the awning when you wind it in, once it gets close to the van. maybe your has come off?

the judder does sound like the gearbox but i thought i had a gearbox issue once and it turned out not to be, it's a lot of money if you're not sure.

Yes it is about 5 metres, and there is something in the centre, but hubby says it looks more like a metal roller, perhaps this is part of the problem, it definitely feels as if it needs a little "lift"
I agree it is rash to presume that it is the gearbox, which is why we would prefer to find someone to check it out properly, rather than just a couple of amateurs guessing what the problem is - but it would still be cheaper than Marquis spending an hour looking at it.

try phoning either hill view or rose, explain the problem (juddering and needing a lift etc) in the context of "which part do i need to buy from you", they could well be familiar with the symptoms and state the part straight away, assuming a part is required.
