The self-storing aspect of your design is what makes it pure genius, OC.

Putting down the earth anchors has become my job. It gives me something to do while he's busy with water, sewer and power line connections, etc. The ratchet straps I leave to HIM...I'll be danged if I can figger out how those stinkin' things work! And yep, he's tried to show me on various things many times....my brain just goes into "hmmm ok, we'll leave that up to him" mode.

OC, what do you need for the set? Me and the wife just bought our first TT and it feels great, but I know with the auto awning it needs some support.

I have a Lippert power awning on my Greywolf 26dbh. How much would a set cost and would it be a complete kit?

Awning pole hold down kit

For those who can't get the poles but can get the brackets... I modified paint roller extension poles that I bought from Lowe's. I used them once this year and, so far, they have worked out very well.
