I still have a set of telescoping deflapper poles you can have. Already drilled.

Weather finally cleared a little and I got off my lazy rear and installed the deflappers and took pictures.

Will try to incorporate the end sunscreens on the deflapper poles when we get them out in FL this winter and eliminate the extra ss hook at the upper end of the arms on the trailer.

So you have a mod to add poles alongside the awning to attach clamps to as well as a mod to have poles that go from the awning tube to the ground?

It's a wonder the RV industry never thought of doing something like this...

Yes, got the deflapper pole idea from someone on the forum and Bob Caldwell. So far, (and I haven't had it in wind) I think it will work great and especially if I can add the end sunscreens to them.

I have had them in the wind....Wyoming and Montana. Work slick, but had to add short velco strap to the deflappers as this set had a short tail and my awning sits in about 4 to 5" on each end from the factory arms. With having awning led lights in the awning roller, there wasn't a slot left for a sun shade, so I added gromments to awning flap and a few more to shade and use small caribenners to hold it in place
