Hello all

all over its length, i know it can be done with pliers but this does not

Assuming that you have a small area where the awning rail has opened
up, lightly tap with a soft mallet then use an awning rail spreader to
open it up to the correct diameter. Most caravan accessory shops have
then, if you are struggling to get one have a look at
http://www.towsure.com/product.asp?p=2483 .

If you have had an accident where a lot has been sqaushed or damaged,
have the rail replaced, it will almost certainly need resealing
anyway.
