Slide out awning.

One of our slide out awning anchors on the left side somehow got torn out. When we tried to replace it we cannot get screws to go back in the holes. We tried several sizes - no success. Any suggestions?

That makes me think the screws broke off... and I don't have any idea how to go about removing them. You may need to move the bracket/or whatever away from the original holes a little.

If they are broke off in the holes: you'll just need to figure out a way to move the mounting points over a little bit. (Maybe a half-inch...)
If they tore out of the holes: fill them with epoxy, and re-drill some pilot holes. You should then be able to get things back in place easily.
Good luck!
