Ok there are 458 replys to this topic and I'm not about to go the route so here is my question which may have been address here. Knowing the power awnings use small motors and subject to failure is the mounting of the awning hold down kit with poles going to affect the motor if you leave the poles attached when retracting or is one suppose to remove poles when retracting? Just curious. Later RJD

NO PROBLEM with the motors that I know of Had them on since OC started to make them. The motors are stonger then you think.

I have a set of black powder coated awning poles @ a discount if anyone is interested.

There's a slight blemish in the powder coating, that unless pointed out is minimally noticeable.

Contact me for more info.

ALUMINUM POLES HAVE ARRIVED!

No worries on these not being heavy or strong enough!

I've already got one set sold and will get them made by the end of the weekend!

If I can get enough orders to place a bulk order I can make these cheaper!

I'm excited to offer these great looking poles to the forum!

Stay tuned for the finished product!
