Unzip the awning bag and unroll the awning ... the three vertical support poles nest within the front awning rail and should drop down from it once you fully unroll the awning. With one of the three ridge poles preset to the correct length simply set the end with the plastic tip in the (middle) hole located on the front rail and rest the rubber foot end against the roof sidewall. At this point the awning will be self supporting and you can then put the two outer ridge poles in place at your leisure. A tip ... inside the awning bag you see three fabric loops ... before placing the rubber foot end of each ridge pole against the roof sidewall give each of the loops a 180 degree twist, then insert the pole end through the loop ... when the wind comes up the poles will be much less likely to pull out of the loops. Once set up you may want to guy the awning so a sudden wind gust doesn't cause it to collapse OR you could modify the bottom of each vertical pole as I did
and simply stake the poles to the ground.
