That's a great pic. Where do you find that top piece on the PVC pipe that holds the awning? Is that something you can get at lowes?

I just need to cut them off about 8" to be even with the electric awning poles.
I think he is talking about using the small HORIZONTAL "C" channel arms at the top of the awning, not the large legs that connect to the bottom of the trailer and the end of the awning tube.

It looks like it is a T that has been modified. Never used that type pole as I didn't want something else to have to store.

I saw a video a bit ago where they called that a "saddle" fitting, and they found it at Lowe's.

I'm going to use either PVC or metal conduit for my poles. Want to paint them to match the RV regardless.

Should either type be primed before painting, or just rough up with a Scotch Brite pad then paint?

pvc ones need adhesive promoter before being painted.

Both the electrical PVC and the metal electrical conduit need primer from what I've been told. Scotch Brite pads will help scuff the finish before primer and painting.
