Dometic 9100 arm replacement

I have to replace the arms on my 9100 awning. I have everything I need but the pop rivets for the bottom of the arms. Does anyone know what size rivet (diameter and length) is needed.
Does forest river have a helpline that can give that info?

Thanks for any help.

About a week or two ago someone else had issues with the awning and the kit from dometic is 3/16 Oscar rivets. I'm pretty sure this is correct.

Fyi..

The Dometic rivets posted in this thread worked perfectly.

Awning is back on and working perfectly.

Learned my lesson with fleabay though. The brackets sent with my replacement arms were bent. I had to take the arm apart and use my old wall bracket which fortunately wasn't damaged when the arms were destroyed.

It would have been so much easier to just leave the wall bracket on there and replace the mechanism. The only thing that holds it together is a few pins and some of those internal star washers.

Dometic charges over $400 for the set.. what a crock you can't just buy a replacement mechanism.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

This is just for the left side.

They don't sell just the arm pieces for the 9100. All I could find was a complete assembly.
