I would absolutely expect a new awning pole. For curtains you could use a long shower curtain spring rod and hang a drape or curtain of the appropriate size from it.

"If you turn the lights off and push the button will the bathroom light come on? Only thing I can think of that a switch in that location would be for.
I'd push for a new awning pole."

No, the lights are ALL push-in LEDs on the ceiling. There are no switches to turn the lights on or off.

---so after camping over the 4th (first time out with the brand new camper, just bought it and brought it home on June 25), see if anything else is "faulty" and then call to request an order on a new awning pole? The part that you push in on both sides to "snap" it in and then "un-snap" to loosen the poles so you can open them, that is the part that doesn't snap together. Or should I just call tomorrow and ask them to order me a new awning pole? The two service men tried to tell me that most people buy the velcro straps for added support anyhow.

Nearly all "stick and tin"(wood frame/metal siding) trailers are considered entry level, compared to the aluminum frame/filon (fiberglass) sided trailers, because they are cheaper to build.

And the velcro thing, that's BS!
I've been on various Hybrid TT forums for over 10 years and I've NEVER read about such a thing.

bikendan... then I won't tell you that they told us we should bring a 2" ball when we asked (but it needs a 2 inch and something.. can't think of it off the top of my head.... so we did bring one of our 2 inches.. (we have a bunch of different sizes for various snowmobile trailers, bikes, etc) but they made us pay for the ball in the correct size we needed. When I asked for a refund on the card the next day, they said sure, just bring the other ball back and we will refund. Plus, there are a few other issues that I personally had, but I didn't know, we didn't know..... I did email to ask if they are ordering us a pole or what. I was a bit disappointed with the whole experience.

Doesn't look like a switch. Looks like something that keeps pressure on the door when closed to keep it from rattling??

PS. Dealer PDI's tend to be disappointing. You'll get more info from these forums and just plain old investigating while it's parked in your yard.

It's too bad that you didn't come here before you bought the trailer.

I'm thinking the Velcro straps are these.

Asquared, I don't see anything. Did you post a pic? I have a pic in my ambulm now of the bel roe straps. I can't seem to post anymore pics of the button. They are in my album too. I did ask a few questions on here before buying but I was looking at a Wolf Pup. Atthe time, I didn't realize how much improvement there has been on bunkenda/canvas/etc. I had to keep investigating and I went back three times.
