Dometic Power Awning Tie Down Kit-PVC Poles

I now have the Dometic Power Awning Tie Down Kit with PVC schedule 40 electrical conduit telescoping poles. These poles are grey and have the same high quality workmanship as the previous alum. poles. All the attaching brackets and stow brackets are still 6065T6 alum, stainless steel bolts & nylock nuts. Rivets are included to install the stow brackets as well as the hitch pins. Installation takes an ave. of 30 minutes. Pole attaching brackets utilize the existing factory bolts.

Price of the new PVC pole kits is $100 + $10 shipping tube + UPS Ground. If you have a motor home and need longer poles, let me know and I will custom make your set at no additional charge.

How are they attached on the ground, or are they just resting on it and you need a tiedown strap as well?

The tie down is a critical part of the support. The adjustment pins just rest on the lower poles and the tie down provides the downward and outward force to support and tension the awning.

Not of them actually deployed.

Here is a photo of the pin stowed and the same pin goes in the adjustment holes in the second photo when the legs are extended.

You can see how they deploy by looking at Oldcoot's picture album.

I got the impression he wanted a photo of the cross pin installed with the awning out and tied down.
