Awning hold down inside track

Hi all on a 19-day trip with our new Crusader 296 5th wheel and itís been great so far. Just noticed on one side of my Dometic awning that the hold down that fits inside the track (round black plastic type tube) held in position by a screw is missing. Looked on line but I canít seem to find what this parts called. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Will post a few photos later of what I am refereeing to if it helps.

Yes, pictures would help.
On a Dometic electric awning there is a rubber bumper (kind of looks like a slice of tube) on each side but it is not plastic.

There are also plastic tracks that conceal the wiring but they look nothing like a tube.

We are all just guessing without photos.

Yes photos are what's needed for sure and here they are.

One you can see a white holder with a screw in it.

The other photo you can see noting is holding the awning in the track and I need to fix this not worth taking this to the dealer its a DYI for sure.

That screw is just holding the extra awning mounting bead in place and it was done so the awning will not shift in its mounting. No need for a screw on the other end. You're good to go. Not an issue.

As said before it's just a screw to keep the awning in place. I have seen the material pull out of the channel on one of my previous trailers. Since then I have added screws to the awning to prevent the material from pulling out of the track. It's your call. It will probably be fine as is.
