carefree eclipse awning - fascia cap bolts?

On a recent trip back from New Jersey to Arkansas , my better half accidentally hit the awning power and awning out buttons on the passenger dash. This resulted in the awning going out a little and pulled the bottom securing bolts out of the wall. I secured it with tape and we made it home without further damage. Now I'm ready to repair but I'm a little stuck ... I'll have to use the next size bolt to secure the arm, but first I need to get the bolts securing the fascia cap to the fascia removed. The exploded view shows the bolts but no number or size info ... so far I've tried hex keys, Philips and flat screwdrivers and have not found something to turn the bolts.
So, anybody done repairs and remember what sort of fastener this animal is?

Look over this installation manual. It may identify the part(s) you are working with.

http://carefreeofcolorado.com/docume...ion-Manual.pdf

However, there is this at Section 9.2: "If the hole is through the outer skin only, ream the hole out to 1/4" and attach arm with a moly rivet."

Good luck.

Aha ... yep ... there it is ... socket head cap screws 9/64 Allen wrench. Thanks much! Don't know why I grabbed the parts doc and not the installation guide.
