Another Zip Dee Question--just a quick one!

How many holes are there in the arms of the Zip Dee awning? I go out to 4, but always want to try for 5, but never have found a 5th & am afraid I'll reach the end of the section & will have a disaster! I looked at the Zip Dee parts catalog, but they don't have a drawing of the arm with the holes!

Anybody know?

I only drop toothbrushes down the black tank. I only puncture freshwater tanks with drills, so that leaves the grey tank. Humm, I'm sure there's some way that could happen to the grey tank.......arm flies through side & punctures grey tank.

Hey, a friend was attaching something to the bottom of his Airstream and put a small hole in the bottom of his black water tank. He didn't know it until his next rally. Sure cleared out the neighborhood.

as stated, there are 4 holes, they DO break under the weight of water; and they cost $40+ un installed. Ask me how I know!!!!

awning

Last month I replaced my awning,new fabric and hardware.I did not roll it up when I left for the night a rain storm came up.When I returned I found my new awning with bent support arms,I mean bent,but I was really surprised that the fabric did not rip off of the camper.I'm glad I keep the old hardware.
