OC...when installing the top bracket is it better to let the awning all the way out, or just a little way to remove the 1/4" bolt?

I deployed mine all the way so it was a little easier to reach. Don't like climbing up a ladder anymore at my age.

I like options...I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to cause any problems if I did it one way or the other.

I added the extra ss bolt & locknut in the lower hole to hold it straight after attaching the stow brackets, mark the hole and drill.

Well, the lost has not been found, but we now know that Joe's kit was the 1st shipped and was received with one end of the shipping tube a huge mass of clear shipping tape that wasn't put there by me. So, UPS must have thrown the tube and busted the end out and loosing everything but 1 pole assy and was too lazy to pick up the scattered pole assy, hardware & instructions. We are in touch with UPS to see what can be done to rectify their negligence. Could not file an online claim, so email was sent and expecting a call from them today.

Will keep you posted.

OC.... nobody reeeaally thought that you put three poles in one tube and one in another....

Glad the mystery is solved. there should be standard insurance on the shipment by ups.

My shipping tube was also very beat up, one end was secured with lots and lots of clear shipping tape. The wood cap had broken out of the rivets and someone had re secured it with a bunch of sloppy tape, not even carefully done.

Fortunately all the poles and parts were there. UPS usually does better than this. Could have been one bad employee that decided to throw them around.

Sad that you find people like this.

I didn't either, but with a major case of CRS, it could of happened. We'll see what UPS will do, they are supposed to call today. Hopefully they will pay the full amount declared and I can purchase material locally and make one pole assy, (already got the brackets made) and complete Joe's set. Sure didn't want to start making another pole assy with all the setup for drilling, etc.
