Bunk beds get tangled up?

Sorry fixed my post and added "fishing poles" so it will make a little more sense and added the awning brackets that came today from oldcoot! Everyone needs a set of his brackets.

OldCoots awning brackets
The poles are closet telescoping hanging rods for $13 per set with a $.75 pvc cap that fit perfectly in the end.

We have a 2013 Vibe 6501.
Yesterday, I was checking things out in preparation for our upcoming trip and determined that the microwave/convection oven had died. So I removed it and took measurements (11 1/8" high X 21 1/4" wide X 15 7/8" deep). Went to Walmart and found a 1000 watt Hamilton Beach Microwave with almost the same dimensions. Was able to transfer the face plate with no problem. The old oven had legs under it so I cut a couple 1" shims from a scrap pieces of 2X4. Secured them to match the footprint of the new oven. Looks like it came from the factory.
Here is a picture of the finished project.

Went to camping world and got another x-chock --2 jack stands to help with stabilization and a screen door brace to use as handle to close the screen. All in all a good day Need to find time to put the screen door brace on.

I installed a Max Air vent shroud on the rearward most vent on our 5er, fixed DW recliner chair. Removed the flat head stainless screws that were bottoming out on the handle. ground the end off, better but need round head screws to tighten up the handle. Greased the zerks on the landing gear.

Changed the main door lock. Replaced the bed gas Pistons with 100 lb ones. Now ?I don't have to hold the bed up with my head to access the storage underneath. Also put a shoe holder at the bottom of the bed.

Dug out the fifth wheel from a 6 foot snow bank and brought it home. Gave her a quick look over to give me piece of mind. Now I will take my time doing some minor maintenance on it and be ready for camping may 2-4 weekend, snow permitting!
