Wind got my awning today

Anyone had to buy 66" arm with attached bracket? Can't seem to find the bracket only. This is the one up by the driprail. Thanks.

What is the year, make and model of the awning arm?

In February-March I had to help someone repair a Dometic/A&E model 8500 from the early 2000s. I looked for the parts and found that Dyer's Online ( had the parts and were very quick shipping them. Pleasant on the phone, too.

One one arm I replaced the bracket. It was not the neatest riveting job. On the other, I replaced the arm. When it failed the bracket tore the rivet hole open at the end. I could have repaired the arm, but it wasn't worth it for the difference in price between the arm-with-bracket and the bracket by itself.

Link to arm I selected is here. Link to bracket is here. I see the bracket is out of stock at the moment. Note: I found I could not order a grey bracket anymore.

If you have a Dowmetic/A&E 8500, please confirm all the part numbers for yourself- don't go by what I chose..

I used dyers last year to replace an awning ruined by a strong wind and was extremely happy with their customer service. Good luck with ur repairs.
