Great pics but you should have included some of the ones that survived with your poles. I did not attach mine to the awning with bolts, I store them in the pass thru and use spring clips to attach at the camp site.

Keep in mind I can also make these in only two poles, however they CANNOT be powder coated.

My normal set of poles are only as long as the awning arm for a nice clean factory look with nothing hanging down.

The george town triple also follows suit for a nice clean factory look.

The george town double would have the inner pole hang below the awning arm.

Looks to me those damaged awnings all were from a rainstorm. Either not angled or dump feature didn't work. Can't see how poles would if helped at all, if not make it worse.

Rain and wind.
Poles will for the most part eliminate both issues.

Poles diffidently would have helped. How ever Some folks do not have a clew about these new electric awnings and also probably newbies. The pole system works great even for high winds but here again one has to use good judgment also as to leaving out in bad weather. Later RJD

I was thinking the same thing. In the pic of the Fuzion, it looks like the poles would still be there had they been installed.

I'm actually a big proponent of the poles and would like to get some myself eventually, but if the awning is going to rip away from the trailer itself, there's not much you can do.
