Now we are down to 2 kits left.

Also got the checks from UPS for Rebecca's & Joe's lost poles, brackets & hardware. Hopefully all those that lost parts I have sent replacements. If not, please contact me.

When I started to extend the pole it stuck so now I cannot slide (read force) the pole in either direction. I guess I will go the painter pole direction now.
Got the poles separated today, but did not have to spend two hours like OC experienced. I had to use a pipe wrench at the base of the outer pole cause the base plate did not hold up to the tourque required to break the poles free. The inner pole was really gouged from the shaving that was between the inner and outer pole, but it will not show when the pole is extended. Used wet/dry sandpaper to smooth it up, but the poles bound up again when they were put back together. I wrapped and stapled some sandpaper to an old broom handle and reemed out the inner surface of the outer pole and now they slide like they are supposed to.
Thanks OC.

No i resent that, If you remember with your CRS. Mardey installed them on the second awning while at your house. At that time I was going to only use one set and move them to either awning.( couldn't afford two sets at the time) When I bought the second set of poles you sent them prepacked. I even Pm you and said do you want them back being you guys installed them at your home so I could carry them on either awning. I'll leave them in my trailer and next time I see you I will give them back to you, not a problem.Who knows when I will see you again but I will hold them...

Still have 2 sets left that I can ship tomorrow. Looks like with the diminishing demand, this will be the last of them for a while.
