Regarding those pins and the location thereof;
For me anyway, the end pin lock was too high, the second one too low so........
I made a drill guide to properly locate the drill, (if memory serves, a 7/16") and using masking tape to locate the drill depth, I drilled the two holes.
The Awning is now right where I want it; and I can lower one end for drainage.
(NOW; about that STOOPID 'SCARE LIGHT';
when I get the proper sized dog dish, [a previous 'thread'] I can take care of it too.)
