You are pulling DOWN on the roller; not pushing it up.

I think he means to use the ratchet type cargo bars as poles.

So, the springs will be taking up space in the "everything else" drawer in the RV. Mark my word, some day they'll be just what we need for some other issue that comes up.
HAHA You are sooo funny! Are you guys coming to Goshen? Love to meet you two!

Nope, not goin' to Goshen, but we're in the planning stages of going to NC (Arden) in the fall, and ain't no way we're goin' that close to OC and TOWTA without meetin' up with them!

(gotta have a "set-to" with Ms. Frankie so she can teach me how to get my man to admit I'm TOWTA too!)

Do you mean TOWTA #2 or TOWTA also?

What does TOWTA stand for? I've been trying to figure that out for some time now.

I'm driving back from Florida to Texas and just saw a set of OC's awning pole tie downs on a 5th wheel off of I-10 in Vidor, Texas. Way to go OC.

Hi OC. Here's a testament to your awning pole and bracket design. Had a really severe wind and rain storm go thru our campground yesterday afternoon. 4 awnings were destroyed. We had a river flowing underneath the trailer but the awning stayed right where it was supposed to! Here's a pic I took during the storm...
