2014 Sport 10 awning
Our dealer didn't install the awning on our new 2014 Sport 10 when we bought it last week. We got home to discover that the poles were still shrink-wrapped inside the camper. Since the dealer is 1 1/2 hrs. away we want to know if we can install the poles ourselves. I've read the instruction manual carefully but it is little help. Can anyone give us instructions on how to do this? I know from a previous camper how the poles attach to the top of the camper and to the ground or the bottom of the camper, but the two halves (each containing 2 legs) aren't hooked together. There are, however, two short pieces (one with a 1/2" hole in the middle and the other with 4 screw-sized holes) that can slip into the larger halves joining them together. There are no corresponding holes in the leg-containing pieces for screwing the two halves together, and I don't want to go drilling holes if they aren't needed. Finally, assuming that the two halves are permanently attached together, are they attached to the fabric awning or removed every time we take the awning down.
Thanks for your help. The tech guy at the dealer was clueless and said he would have to contact Jayco. I guess they don't sell many pop-ups.
