EDIT: Added a step 0 to note awning pole position
Another setup item...be careful with your awning. My first time or two I did not do things in the right order (didn't remember the demo as well as I should have), resulting in a lot of stress at the awning mount points at the top, so much so that I could see the brackets flexing the screws!
Here's my procedure now (btw, I have a 23SS w/ a manual awning...if yours is power, you can stop reading now):
vertical awning pole
= the large pole that connects at the bottom of the camper frame. I call this vertical because you can detach this from your camper, and set it up vertical from the awning down to the ground (or you can leave it attached, in which case it's more of a 45 degree angle)
horizontal awning pole
= the thinner pole that, when the awning is set up, extends from the top of the camper straight out to the awning. It is the piece that has the tension knob.
0. take note of the vertical arm position so you know where to return it when you take your awning down; if necessary move the stop pin to the hole closest to the vertical pole (see picture here
1. get your awning hook out and ready near the pull strap
2. unscrew (loosen, do not remove) the tension knobs on each horizontal awning pole
3. click the two locking tabs to free the vertical awning pole from the horizontal poles
4. using the awning hook, flip over the lever on the top right side to allow the awning to be pulled out
5. using the awning hook, grab the strap and pull the awning all the way out
6. slide the horizontal arms up until the click in securely at the top of the vertical awning poles (do not yet tighten the round knobs)
7. on each side, release and extend the vertical arms to raise the awning up to the height you want (2 people is best here)
8. now go back and tighten up the knobs, so that the top bars are tight and support the awning from retracting or flexing. This is very important!
9. Leave a slight angle so water can drain, if rain is expected
Reverse these steps to return the awning to travel position.
