I bought a new longer
dometic awning (from Craigslist), not thinking about the awning arms and the fact that the only area we could mount the rear arm would be right at the storage compartment.
Then, I got the brilliant idea to use the shorter awning arms like they use on the 'big rigs.' Has anyone ever done this before? Do they have to be mounted at the floor line or is it stable enough to mount the bottom of the awning arms at the rivet line where they have riveted the side panels? I have attached a picture and the red X is where the short arms will mount. the yellow line is where the prior bracket was mounted at the floor line.
All thoughts and opinions are appreciated...
