I've drilled the 5/16" holes for mounting (i'm using 5/16 hex bolts) etc, just need to remake the brackets before I can actually finish the install
I too had the propane hard line in the way. What I used were 4 beam flange clamp conduit mounts from the hardware store. I also used fender washers to shim it to get the correct clearance. I did the same on my friends and it worked well again. Anytime you can avoid putting holes in the frame is a good thing.

Had never seen those before. I'm curious how you got space to clamp them around the frame. Did you have to cut away some of the trim or the under-belly "skin" ?

I've drilled the holes now anyway, and I'm sure they'll be fine. I think re-making the brackets will be sturdier than using a dozen or so fender washers as stand-offs, tho I guess using them as standoffs would be slightly easier (tho would require yet another trip to hardware store)

Finished installing the awning deflapper poles yesterday but didn't get to fit the actual deflappers on them. The TURBS powder coated poles look good. When the weather straightens up(stops raining off and on) I will mount the deflappers and may even use the deflapper poles to anchor the end sun screens. Pictures when weather permits. Thanks OC west for the idea of storing the poles along side of the awning arms. Kinda de-bunks "You can't teach old dogs new tricks."

Meant to ask you two how you store your awning poles. I wasn't sure if they stayed attached to the awning, and folded up (like the ones did in my old popup, tho' they went inside the awning itself), or whether you detached and stored them in the 'basement'.
Interested how you attach them to the awning arms.

Got my WifiRanger today and started configuring my network. Printing on it vs. through the hotspot is 10x faster.

OC makes brackets that attach to the awning arms by bolts and pop rivets, and hold the poles while in use and while travel'n, so the poles stay with the awning arms.

When you are driving all over the US you run into a lot of people that like to cut you off when you leave room between you and the next guy, I want to be able to stop.
Which "WolfPack" has 3 axles?

Made the new deeper brackets for my sewer fence post mod this morning, and spray painted them. Hoping to install them tomorrow morning
