Electrical Conduit

I Magivered a set of support poles using 1" and 11/4" EMT one inside the other. I used floor flanges to connect pipes to concrete pad and as supports for ends of awning along with straps .Flanges are connected to pipe ends with EMT connectors. I drilled holes in pipes and use metal pins with cotter pins to keep assemblies at desired height. The assemblies secure everything and help prevent the awning being bent since they lessen downward pressure with just using straps. Insofar as having rollers wear through awning material I put 1" foam between fabric and roller end.

What I was trying to say is if you keep the awning straight out, horizontal or however you wish to describe it you can have cast iron poles and the awning hardware will self destruct in any kind of significant rain. There must be a slope to the awning and that is where the "rub" comes in with the awning coming over the slide topper. I use maximum slope and tie down with the ShadePro and have been doing so for over three years with no problems, in southeastern thunderstorms.

I have OLDCOOT's setup without the vertical support poles....Leave it up in FL..Gulf coast, Sarasota for 3 months......You need lots of slope for tie downs to be effective Our sun screen has lots of "elastic" tie downs to pet anchors along the edge
