I don't understand why you don't just post it publicly so people who search can find them. Is there any way you can PM me the details as well?

Thanks!

Right! I thought the whole idea of this form is to pass along knowledge to fellow RVers.

I did that many years ago but it gets buried and/or archived. But here it is again.

I bought the springs at Home Depot or Lowes; can't remember which. They are springs that can be depressed and they push back. Find one that will fit into the larger tubing and at a strength you can compress but firm enough to hold the end panels well. I know it takes two hands on, to push the 1/2" EMT tubing back a few inches into the 3/4".
Sorry, I do not remember the specific information about these. I already had some 3/4" tubing available and used pieces about 14" long for each rafter. Put a rubber foot on one end. Put spring inside tubing. Install 1/2" EMT and cut it to fit the length you will need to hold the panel when it is compressed; in other-words longer than the awning fabric dimension. Put a bumper foot on 1/2" EMT end. Drill a 1/4" hole through rubber foot. Install a 1/4" x 20 stove bolt a couple inches long with a flat washer on each side of foot and a nut to hold it in place. You will have to drill a 5/16" hole in the awning tube at a position that is at the end of the front Patty O room panel and centered when the awning fabric is fully extended. Do this on both ends.
Thread the assembled tubing from the outside edge; 3/4" EMT first toward the coach through the end panels with the awning extended and put the rubber foot at the intersection of the awning fabric and side wall of coach in-line with the end of front panel on tube. Push; compressing the spring and inserting the 1/4" bolt into the 5/16" hole in tube. Do this on each end and then raise the awning hardware to the desired height.
Good luck and let me know how you come out.

Oh I did find that. I was under the impression that there was more to the story. Specifically the factory kit has pole holders that mount to the rv. Do you just sandwich the pole at the corner between the awning and the wall and it just stays put? My carefree room isn't spring loaded like this and has hanger brackets. (We have 2 rooms, neither of which we can use on our new motorhome!)

For what it's worth, your spring pole idea is pretty much genius

It is not my idea, this is the way dometic designed the original I just copied this available parts. It just pins into the awning tube and the rubber stopper end will hold the coach side without scratching.
