I bought Solera 12v awning kit to replace the existing manual arms.
In the installation manual reads the two middle and two lower holes can be secured with rivets.
But in a fiberglass unit, rivets are not to be used due to the material chipping. I called LCI help desk that said they don't do installation then read the manual but didn't know the answer.

I see that there are "Tri-fold exploding Aluminum rivets" available so maybe that could be used (?).

For those in the know, what's the correct rivets to be used?
