Zip Dee roller plate please help with a picture

Can someone please take a picture and post it here on how a Zip Dee roller plate is supposed to be installed on the middle portion of the lengthwise awning for a 1979 (or other) 31' rig? I called Zip Dee because I could never figure out just where the middle support for the awning was supposed to go. Couldn't find a spot where the pointed end of that support would plug into. We came to the conclusion that I was missing the "roller plate" on the middle of my awning. Now have roller plate in hand but a picture would be worth a thousand words as to where it is supposed to go.

The center support must be attached to a vertical rib.

The roller tube end of the center support plugs into a plate. The center of that plate is a guide for you to drill a hole through the plate and through the roller tube.

Doesn't matter that the center support may not be exactly in the center of the roller tube.

That's it.

Well I'm missing that plate completely but have a new one from Zip Dee now. Hopefully with the help given here I can find where the old one may have fallen off.

wac

if you unroll your awning all the way you might be able to feel where the holes are in the tube.

Hmmm, something don't seem right here. Here is a picture of the L bracket (which looks about right) and the roller bracket.



Does it look like the roller bracket is even big enough to support a hole large enough for the pole?
