How to repair or replace an AirPole?
For Air-Frame system awnings you can remove an Air-Pole when the awning is inflated or deflated but if it’s inflated the isolation valves around the Air-Pole must be closed.
- Unzip the outer sleeve holding the Air-Pole.
- Undo the compression fittings on the affected side of the isolation valve. There may be multiple valves per Air-Pole. You should now be able to remove the Air-Pole.
NEVER OPEN THE ZIP ON A PROTECTIVE SLEEVE WHILST AN AIR-POLE IS INFLATED.
- Unzip the protective sleeve of the Air-Pole to expose the bladder (inner tube).
- Locate the puncture. This is made easier if you blow some air into the tube. For small holes it may be necessary to submerge the bladder in water.
- Once the puncture has been located the bladder can be repaired using repair tape. We recommend product CA9001
- Awning & Tent Repair Tape.
1. The repair can be enhanced by using a combination of the above and product CA9011 - Repair Solution, which is a flexible adhesive (repair tape and repair solution are available together in kit form). Follow the manufacturer instructions to repair.
2. Another alternative is to replace the tube. Spares are available from your dealer or direct from Kampa.
- Reassemble the Air-Pole, zip back into the sleeve and reconnect the hoses to the isolation valves.
