If it's like our last two pup ups, there are the vertical poles that drop out and adjust for height, and separate loose spring poles that tension the awning from the roof to the awning cross bar. If I remember, there were two of them, one for each side. More than once I had cranked the roof all the way up and forgot to put the poles together first when it was only cranked up a foot or two. Had to step on the cooler to reach the roof.
If you're going to "regret it in the morning", sleep until noon.
