Window awning installation
I have a 2013 Columbus 5th wheel that I would like to install window awnings. I will be adding 2 six footers on the right slide. I would like to save the installation costs by doing it myself. I have a neighbor who mounted his, and he said that he did not worry about finding studs etc, to screw into to mount the tracks. He just predrilled a pilot hole in the side for each screw and after adding sealant to the hole screwed it in. He has not had any problem with the awnings coming loose. I have also read that rivits are used where there is no wood or metal stud. Has anybody done this or does anybody know how they mount them at the factory?
