Awning pole hold down kit

By my calculations, after lobbing the flared end off, I'd be left with about 117". Dividing that by two I'll end up with two outer poles at 58-1/2" each in length instead of the 60" in length as specified in the drawings. I went ahead and cut them that way, first at 58-1/2, then again at 58-1/2 to account for the blade thickness. The second cut was right where the flare started so it looks like I got the most of a single pole I could.



Do you foresee any issue with that 1-1/2" discrepancy? I don't think it'll make much of a difference since the ones I saw at the rally weren't anywhere close to full extension, but I'd like to be sure.

We'll, I got the project (mostly) finished. It's just missing a coat of paint, but the DW doesn't let me paint so that'll have to wait for her to get fed up with grey poles.

Old Coot told me to put a cap on the bottom to act as the feet, but they were out of stock. Instead, I found these meter hub connections that I thought would act like a great foot for the poles.

Even with the foot turned in towards the trailer the foot still has clearance.

Thanks OC, I appreciate your guidance and I can't wait to try them out at a campsite.

Looks like we will have kits available to ship Tues 26Aug for the one day only as we are going to TOWTA's reunion in MO and won't be home until the following Tues 02Sep. SO, if you want a set in the next couple of days, PM me for details.
