Happy camping.
As far as I know, such specific hybrid info, has NEVER been in the manual.

Please relate any owners manual info, in your manual, that is specific to hybrids.

The only thing mine had, was one sheet of paper about care and maintenance of the canvas.

It stays in just fine. Still surprised that I was that dumb.

I'm pretty careful about everything in there... water, gas, battery connections etc. Overlooked the easy thing.

Agree with bikendan, our 23IKSS did not come with anything that told how to set up the canvas ends at all. Just the one sheet care and maintenance for the canvas itself. We bought ours new and the dealer showed us how to deploy the canvas and even then, once home and trying to replicate what they did, we had a momentary lapse of memory! Wish FR provided more detailed owner's manuals.

Good post! I too was not sure how to set up the poles and I just had a hybrid for 6 years before this, a picture page with text instructions would have been nice, maybe we should put one together for future new owners, we could also inform about common things like battery cut off switch, tv set up etc, these rigs really are awesome and fun but they do have a learning curve I think we could help with.

FWIW, I did find a replacement part with a quick google search here:

Forest River I0100 Palomino / Forest River Pop-Up Camper Bed Pole Connector Base - 2 Pack | Hanna Trailer Supply Oak Creek, Wisconsin

Although I am curious how they managed to stay up at all if they were in backwards?

I've had 2 popups myself and known several others with pop-ups/hybrids and can't envision how the poles could have possibly worked if they were reversed. The ones we always had were shaped like a big "L".

Good idea! We also had a hard time figuring out how to fold the bed end up properly when we first got it. Thankfully, the owners on this forum are so helpful when you have an issue.

Sure thing! As soon as I find it. Now, where did I put that? ??

You do know UTube has videos on the Roos. Setup and care. RV Wholesalers put them up.

Here's a video regarding those poles and how to install them (go to 5:30 in the video):
