I found out that I was showed the wrong way to attach the sides to the door frame also. After reading on here about others having problems, I knew I was in the same boat. After unzipping the window for a little extra canvas to work with, it tucked in just fine, the right way, with the seam folded over and pushed into the channel. Problem solved for me.
I don't need a map, my wife is always telling me where to go.
