Thanks a lot 5erDriver! I guess there's always a first time (scare) to drill in the fiberglass!
DW ok'd the purchase, we're heading tomorrow to camping world to get it.
(and they have a great sale too)
I don't recommend leaving the electric awning out 24-7 all season long unless you have old coots poles as noted above.
That being said I had a non-electric canopy 19 on the old trailer with the center and side supports engaged and locked to the ground. Along came a strong wind, knocking the roof portion of the support (anti-sag) out of the hole in the roller tube and through the awning. Yup nice Big hole there! On the good side it was the search for a new awning that got me a knew Trailer instead!....Love that Ebay!
Greetings guys! if you don't mind me asking, was the center support easy to do?
mine is starting to sag already in the center. Thanks for your help!
Most of the F/R units are (Bonded Sides) very THIN skin.Also finding a Stud in the proper location for your support is not Guaranteed. I used a 6x6 stainless plate with (2) fasteners at the top,right under the drip rail,and two rivet fasteners on the bottom. I then mounted the (cradle support) to this plate. That assures a solid base for the cradle assy. Youroo!!
