May have been addressed somewhere in the 181 pages but will your brackets / kits work with the LCI awnings that have the motors mounted on the ends of the arms?
Not my pic... Stolen from google...

Ok, thanks. I used our bungy tie downs for the first few times the last trips. They worked great but the weakness I found is they elbow / gas strut for run off collapses once I tie it off thus loosing the support the tie downs provide. Then I thought the poles might resolve the issue maybe?

May have to bend the ratchet strap tab a little more for clearance, but they should work. If not, send them back and I'll refund your $.

Looks close to this.

Thank you both, I found the post 339... Man the server is slow and had to search several pages at a time to get there.. LOL

I figured on re-directing the forces down the poles and not on the struts. I considered the PVC pipe poles but then I need to store the suckers..

Hey doc73, I got the same awning. What I did was measure down 3 inches from the end of the arm and drilled the first hole. This will leave enough clearance so you won't have to bend the brackets and installing the nuts on the inside. You will need two more bolts and nuts though. Post #1411 shows my install.

I used the PVC, no storing necessary. Post #1428 & 1429 shows what mine looks like. They attach and hang just like the metal poles. I did need to open the brackets up just a small bit to accommodate the larger size of the smaller PVC pipe. They may be a little heavier than the metal ones, but some advantages of the PVC is they have a lifetime color, no painting or polishing is necessary, and no inside rust to deal with, plus IMO they just look really sharp.

I hear that! What do your brackets run these days? PM is fine if that is how you handle the biz. Thanks.
