Heritage Glen 356qbq awning

We recently purchased a 2015 Wildwood Heritage Glen Lite 356qbq. We want to keep the awning out all the time but are having trouble figuring out how. We figured out how to tilt it to keep the water from welling up in the top but are having issues with how to tie it down with ropes and stakes. We can't seem to find a way to stabilize it before we tie it up. Anyone else have this problem? Or can help us?

What you need are a couple of awning poles to support the ends, and then tie off to the ground. Look up "OldCoot awning poles", to get an idea of what I'm talking about.

I have 3 sets of awning pole attaching brackets left. PM me for details. Drawings for the poles are in the forum library.

Is your awning, power or manual? I guess I should have asked that first

Christina that thing in your picture is to mount your TV outside, if you pull your TV away from wall and look at the mount you will see it is identical to the one outside. If you just pull the swingarm straight up it will detach from the bracket.

Ok. I was wondering if it had to do with the awning. lol Thought maybe the dealership forgot to include something for the awning.

The problem I have found with trying to attach any sort of hold down to our awnings is they are about 12' in the air. Will need a 3 stepper to reach it to attach brackets to roll ends. If you leave brackets and poles on permanently (as in Old Coot's ingenius system) then not so much a problem as it would be once and done but if you wanted to just do a ratcheting strap type setup it would be a pain in the arse.

It's automatic but also can be manually manipulated
