    The awning on our '97 Rockwood Premier has me a bit puzzled. The arms that attach to the bottom have a nice spot that they fit into, but the top pair just have flat plastic caps on the end. There seems to be a spot for arms to attach, a small bracket with a slot, but the arms obviously do not fit.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Pick up your awning bag on each end and you will see where the balls plug into the sockets. Remove the black plastic caps and there should be balls that go into the sockets on the wall of the camper

    No socket, just the bracket that I described. Maybe if I remove the caps there will be something that fits?
    BRB!

    Mine look like this there is a set on the roof under the awning bag and 2 on the wall of the camper. The legs with the black caps, remove the caps and there should be balls on the legs to go on the wall sockets. That is if it is a trim line awning you may have a different brand of awning but should work the same way just different leg attachments on camper. Good Luck.

    My '02 Coleman Cheyenne had three cloth mesh loops underneath the awning, and the horizontal supports went through those and pressed against the roof side with rubber feet.

    Mine is the same. Tension spring poles with rubber feet and a plastic point on the other. Slide into sleeves on the sides and pressed into place on the roof. The legs have a plastic hoop on the top so the rafter point goes through the hoop and then into the hole on the awning cross bar.
