All the manual awnings I had, had the pull strap at the middle of the awning. Once you release the turn nobs on each side of awning arms then go to the right side of awning as facing it. Use the awning rod to move the lever at the top down ward. Now you should be able to hook the strap with rod and pull down. Once down you can now extend the awning arms one each side and slide till they lock in place. From there its just a matter of adjusting for height and locking in place with turn nobs. Later RJD

Just be careful don't try to stop the awning from rolling up by putting your arm in the awning arm. I had to rescue a neighbor on the next camp site last summer that somehow got his arm stuck in the awning arm he was in great pain till I released the tension...........

X2... Get help until you are confortable doing it. When I had a manual awning, I kept the strap nearer the end with the release switch. You have to be holding tightly on the strap before releasing the switch as you found out. You also need to be sure you stow it correctly before hitting the highway. But don't you retrieve the strap using a ladder by yourself!
