We had a Viking pup that had a Carefree of Colorado Campout awning on it. That was going to be our next upgrade to our Jayco pup, but, we traded it for a hybrid yesterday. Our Jayco awning, the best luck we had with it, was to raise the roof halfway, then set up the awning. Once the roof was up, it only took a few quick adjustments, and the awning was done as well.

Sounds like my SIL setting up with her DH. I pull up a chair sometimes to watch as it can get pretty entertaining. I only step in when it's favorable or getting out of hand. Some of us have a program and best to leave us to it.

Anyway here is what they use although this can sometimes be the same as the awning. The front tires must come off on this one.

As for the awning here are a few pointers.

Label all the poles with a sharpie and match the numbers at their connection points.

Always put the awning on before putting up the roof if you take it off between trips.

Always remember to tilt it to one corner for water run off.(they almost lost it last season)
These few little tricks seem to make it go a little smoother, but yes it is still a PITA.

Thanks for the awning advice. I have yet to get comfortable with setup. Time will tell.

I used different color nail polish to mark where the poles connect when set up.
