While holding bracket firmly in place remove pin and pull back on upper pole to mark two holes for rivet " a helper comes in handy here"!

Drill holes and pop rivet lower in place.



Remove pole at upper mount carefully not to disturb position and drill lower hole in upper bracket and rivet into place.



Now tighten upper mounting bracket bolt and reinstall upper pole and just run locking nut down to just about touching.



Insert lower pole into upper and align stow holes and insert pin!

This is a typical dometic install .
I'll also be working on a carefree style install.
