Took the 5er to my friendly RV repair shop this morning. The are going yo install new rubber around all 3 slides. Noticed the large one was rotting at the top. Figured I'll get them all fixed. Wish I would have noticed this when we went to Goshen, they might have done it. Oh well.

I've been looking through this thread off and on since I joined, and I keep seeing a reference to awning poles. I can't seem to put together a good enough search (using the App) to find the original pole and / or its intention.

Can someone please enlighten me as to what exactly they are and their purpose? From what I can gather, they attach to the awning and sit on the ground. That is about it.....

Thanks in advance. Pictures help!

OC is the one who started mak'in them, now Turbs does also....was designed for electric type awning to be able to stay deployed in 35 to 40 mph winds. They are attached to awning arms and store there when not in use....slick deal....I made de-flapper poles that also stay attached....go to the for sale area of forum, OC posted yesterday...PS--OC lives in NC

What did you do to your camper today?

I'm not trying to starve the hungry children of those who make poles for a living... but I made mine from PVC pipes I bought at Home Depot.
