We wanted to put a shade on - the kind that hangs from the awning and slides into the groove in the awning roll. Bought one and all set to put it in...when we see the groove in the end cap is not lined up with the groove going the length of the awning roll! There's no way to slide it in from either direction.
Is this an easy fix? There is a screw that seems to hold the end caps on, but didn't want to unscrew it and mess something up. I know there's alot of tension on it and there's a spring involved inside the end roll.
We are so disappointed, as we were looking forward to enjoying some shade. Is it possible to realign the end cap grooves with the awning roll grooves? We are not mechanically inclined.

I have used the drop down type shade many times and I have always been able to mount the shade curtain without aligning the end caps. There is enough room between the end caps and the awning to slide in the shade curtain.
