The upper awning arm attachment points are another place to check for leaks. Both the front and back leaked on our '74 Sovereign
. Each was attached by a combination of 3 rivets or screws along with silicone caulking. I removed them and re-attached with butyl tape, rivnuts and #10 stainless steel bolts. I also drilled a couple of additional holes. I think part of the problem is that there was no attachment at the bottom of the casting and with the forces the awning can put on these parts it's not enough to keep them from moving and loosening the fasteners.
There is a fifth bolt that can't be seen under the end of the awning arm.
