Get the extra 1/4 x 1 ss bolt and ss nyloc nut and bolt the bottom of the bracket solid against the arm. Mark the hole with the pole in the stow position, deploy the awing and drill and install the bolts & nuts.

Platokidd, I noticed your awning is raised up with the poles. I would suggest you lower the poles to the normal position the awning takes when deployed and adjust one pole to that height and the other pole about 6" lower and then tie them down.

Hey thanks OC,
The pics (and I took many)are from working on it today in my driveway. Just going threw the motions checking things out. In that pic Im checking out my pole reach and I have plenty. As you suggested, that is my normal awning position. I need to buy some straps for the tie down.

Vacuumed the coach, cleaned the mirrors and straightened the basement out a little. Beautiful day! Tucson, AZ

Spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out the best "recipe" to get all the oxidation off of the rig, and get some sort of shine back.

My rig is a repo unit and spent a lot of time baking in the sun. I will end up wet sanding (3) of the (4) sides and wheeling the whole unit out, then buffing it. (After peeling off all of the decals.)

I finally got the nerve to drill in the side of the camper to mount the center awning support. Took me longer standing on the ladder building the confidence then it did to actually install
Also got the ball level mounted on the pin finally. It wasn't near as nerve racking drilling into that for some reason.

Yesterday I took our Roo out of winter hibernation, and DW and I went through and came up with a 'honey-do' list (adding a shelf, putting dividers up between a few shelves, 12v light over the sink, etc)

Let the season begin!

Brought my 5er home from storage Saturday. Set up and installed my new Tireminder TPMS and booster. Everything went well and I look forward to our first trip. The bicycles were still in the basement after coming home from Florida, so I removed those and remounted the tires and pedals, readjusted the brakes and have them ready for a ride later this week.
