    So the hubbie and I left for work, we came home later, after it had rained, and found our BRAND NEW 2018 AWNING BENT to pieces on our Rockwood popup, it had only been in 2 rainstorms! My question is, can someone help me with a dyi horizontal beam (the aluminum beam parallel to the camper that the awning is attached to, we have been searching all over and can't even find the correct name for it). We're hoping to have it fixed by next weekend before we go camping again, any help is greatly appreciated!

    WeRJuliIan If it's "Aluminum", why not "Sodum" and "Uranum"?

    We have on old one, left over from our PUP days, that you'd be welcome to cannibalise, if it would help... where are you?

    You didn't give any details on how it was damaged. So you may know this, but always keep one corner lower than the other, 2 or 3 holes lower is good. I pick the corner that looks like it has the best drainage away from the camper.
