Awning mount came off RT 200
I went to deploy the awning while camping and the front bracket came loose from the rivets. My plan is to remove the awning completely, leaving the rear bracket attached to the RT, install new rivets, probably more than factory install, and install a few additional on the rear bracket.
My assumption is that there is a backing plate behind the fiberglass shell that will fall out if all of the rivets are gone. I assume no issues putting the new rivets in different locations on the bracket.
I'm near Mammoth Lakes, CA and can't seem to find a place repair shop close by so it's pretty much an on site repair.
Any thoughts on precautions and/or a different way of attaching? The longest rivets at the store were half inch, long enough?
Thanks. It's all part of owning an older rig, I guess.
