What do you mean by put up? Maybe that's what I screwed up. I loosened these black knobs and the flipped a switch and the awning began to roll up but stopped , the legs binded up and and began to arc from the force , that's where the pins in the handles broke off. I then had to drill the handles off to get the pins out of the way which did help but the legs will not slide up for some reason. I think I bowed the legs to the point of they can't go into the other arm since the bow is a bit too large. I hope you guys can understand me if not I can post pictures tommorrow .

Thanks a lot ,I will watch it, I just watched one too , what a mistake it was to think I can figure it out on my own ... It looks like such a simple mechanism .. Lesson learned

We all have been there. You should be ok if the arms did not bend too much. It will all be worth it when you sit by that campfire the first time.

Yeah I can't wait for that day to come, all day long at work I'm thinking about this camper, I think I'm in love with it, lol. The lower arms bent quiet a bit and that's why they won't go up any more. I have a feeling I am going to have to do some disassembling and straightening out. I happen to be a metal worker so should be able to straighten them out. The project continues and there's still a lot to do, I have to install the WD hitch and the electric brake control to my van. I love working and making things work so all if this has been enjoyable and the fun continues .

So this would fit my awning? Is this a good material? I notice some are 199$ and more and then some are 119$ . This on is cheap but will it last a while ?
