Rear Hatch Awning hold open Rods

Our FC27FBQ with a Hatch was missing one of the little rods that holds the rear awing open. Every parts list I found didn't show the little rod. They must be Hatch specific. I stopped short of calling ZipDee direct. The dealer said they would get me one. Hasn't happened so off to Home Depot to build one. Its a 3/16 steel rod with a vinyl cap and fast nut. Cut, bend, adjust, then polish and clear coated. Fun project, difficulty rating=1, no more waiting.

It's called "self-reliant" and that's what we are. If you own an Airstream, you have to be because no one is going to help you. And apparently, you are!

Good to know. Didnít realize the hatch rear awning was different than the non-hatch version. Now I will be ready when this arm goes missing. Thanks for sharing.
