Dometic Awning Arm

I broke the right awning arm during a collision with a fence post and need to replace it. Actually, I tore part of it loose from the trailer. I cannot find and part numbers on the arm and Dometic has two versions available. Does anyone know what the difference is between the "basement" and "standard" arm?

The basement arms are for an awning to be used over a slide out, they typically extend straight out from tbe trailer.

Dometic is pretty good about having all their manuals available online.

According to this website, Dometic 8551201.400 WeatherPro Awning Hardware Basement Model Camper Trailer RV

The power awning is the basement model and the standard is the manual.

I am sorry for not including this info in my original post. I have a 9100 series power patio awning. The Power Patio Awing manual I have says it applies to both the basement and standard hardware. Looking at drawings, both look identical.
