Default Welcome to the forum

I have seen HiLOS of this vintage. You should be okay if you are handy. A little TLC goes a long way.

I have a1976 2176B like yours, but a year older. A few years ago, I replaced the Bathroom Upper Wall & Ceiling Panels with shower type paneling. Now, the ceiling mostly at the joints & around the Roof Vent need replacement, which requires removing the Upper Cabinets. The Upper Cabinets near the Door Side need Rebuilt anyhow.

Besides putting a new Coil in the Refrigerator (which I had replaced the whole unit several years ago, removed last year & used a small Walmart refrigerator), last year (problems actually starting a few years ago) the Hydraulic Lift pump wouldn't work at all (I've learned that it's probably just the Brushes, because it's NOT the solenoid). So I had to take it on its annual 200 mile journey while in the raised position and back home. Not doing that again. Because I've now had West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease for a year & a half now, I'm not back in good enough shape to complete that type of work again yet.

So, in May, I upgraded from a 41 year old Hi-Lo to only a 17 year old 2600TFB. Just doing maintenance sealing on the exterior, and nothing else needs any work yet. It's going to be nice for a while NOT to have to do so much annual work on it. All I have to do is complete the sealing work which should be done now, and remove the Awning (which I won't use anyhow, and has been damaged on the lower rear portion due to dragging on the road or something). I thread an 18' x 24' Custom Truck Tarp in, with 8' poles for support, and spread commercial carpeting for a nice Pickin' Parlor and Living Room Sitting area. It makes it nice for a 2 week "annual Festival reunion".

Default Just a thought

Awning parts are hard to come by and probably expensive new. Try and sell your awning and parts. Even if the top is ragged out they can be cut and sewed. Best of luck with your new HiLo.

These are the lower brackets needed for the awning.

The top mount shown in your bottom photo appears to be upside down.

Bottom is hooked under what the canvas attaches to. The 2 bolts are wedging it tight. Is it suppose to just bolt to wood or metal behind it? Bottom one is bolted and wedged with a bolt angled thru the siding. Not done accidentally it goes thru the siding about 2 inches. It can't be close to right.

Default Awning Brackets

Ed,

That lower one looks like the Top Bracket going over the roof! And, IF the Awning Connects to it when rolled Up, It's Mounted Correctly, although mine is mounted in the"C" section just below where the Awning is supposed to be Threaded. However, I don't see the Awning anywhere close to it. Although as Rich says, it May be upside down.

The Lower Brackets on mine (All to be removed), your 1st pic, are attached to the bottom of the Upper Section, and hang down about 8". That's why the back one on mine is bent, because it either drug on the Pavement or road at a dip or something.
