Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors

Awning fixed to existing brick retaining wall

I am constructing a flat roofed (scillion) awning. The highest point of the awning is attacked to the house and the lowest point is supported by 90 x 90 timber posts. These posts are on metal feet which are sitting on top of a existing brick retaining wall which is about 700mm high and 300mm thick.
My question is, how long of a bolt will I have to use to attach these metal feet to the wall or how deep will I have to drill and use a threaded rod to aquire sufficient strenght to stop the up draft effect from lifting up the awning.
Hope you can help
Regards Shane

If I were you, I'd use the threaded rod imbedded about 100mm in the wall. Make sure you have at least 5 threads showing after you tighten down the nut on the threaded rod. That will help you decide on the length of the rod. Make sure you use epoxy to hold the threaded rod in place and everything will be fine. However, if a big enough wind comes by, the awning may come loose from your house. Have you thought about a retractable awning? It will roll up next to your house. You only have to unroll it and connect the legs in prepositioned holders. During a storm, you probably won't be outside anyways, better to have the awning rolled up for safety.

    Instructions for operating rv awning


    Manual or electric. If electric press the switch located inside the unit. If manual, you will need to go to each arm and press the release clips to unlock the arms (usually black but may be a lift up lock). Next tank the long rod with a loop on one end and a 90 deg hook on the other. Toward the front of the coach at the top of the awning you will see a small lever on the awning. Use the loop end of the rod to pull the lever down. Take the other end of the rod and insert it into the black strap that should be barely hanging down and pull down as you back away. This should pull the awning out. Once pulled out all the way, go to each end of the awning. Close to the wall of the RV there should be an arm hanging down with a knob on the back of it. Grab the bottom of the arm and slide it out and clip it into the end of the extended awning arm. Push down on the lower arm to tighten the fabric and then tighten the knob. Once both ends have been tightened then on the lower arm there will be a pull out handle in the middle, pull it out to release the lock pin and lift the outer portion of the lower arm up to raise the awning to the desired height. Repeat for the other end. If it is raining or windy put the awning away. DO NOT LEAVE IT OUT! The wind will catch it like a kite and rip it off of your trailer. Rain will fill it up like a swimming pool and collapse the center tube and trap you inside of the RV.

    Motor Home Door Awning


    When you press the operation switch do you hear the motor clicking or trying to operate? If not you need to determine if you have power going to and through the operation switch. These motors usually have an inline circuit breaker that will need to be located. Some of the circuit breakers automatically reset themselves and some have a small button on the side that will pop out when tripped. Once you determine that you have power to the motor and it still does not work then you more than like have a bad motor and will need to manually override the motor to bring the awning in. The awning should have a manual crank that will allow you to connect to the center eye of the operating gear and manually close the awning. I have attached the installation and operating instructions for your awning. http://67.238.126.140/pdf/3307901.011.pdf

    Awning toppers sagging and filling with water


    Hi Ced,

    I would syphon out the water and tighten the awning. If the fabric has stretched too much from the sagging, you may need to add a stabilizer or replace it.

    I found a great eHow article that will walk you through the steps for both scenarios: http://www.ehow.com/how_12125906_fix-sagging-awning.html

    How many winds on the tension spring for a dometic 9100 series awning for initial setting? I heard 1-2 feet out from coach, wind 13 times is standard


    2 ft away from coach,wall, awning rail etc.
    up to 12ft long awning = 8 turns
    13-14 ft = 9 turns
    15-16 ft = 10 turns
    16.5 - 18ft. = 12 turns
    19 ft-up = 13 turns.

    Be real careful, !!! seen many a finger/hand injured if not experienced.
