Need instructions on patio awning for a 92LY

I have a long curb side manual awning with 3 vertical arms on my 92LY. I've seen and used awnings on other RV's with just the side arms. This one has a third arm near center that looks like a brace of some type. I know it's a Dometic A&E but I don't have a manual or model number. Can anyone help me with instructions on how to open and close this unit? What's the center arm/brace for? Any pics on usage or a manual would help a ton. PO did not have the hook to pull the lock so I'll have to fab one up.

I think I have seen this setup on some travel trailers with long awnings. I'll do some checking. Do you have a picture?

Its called a Tension Rafter.

That third arm is called a "center support".

It adds addition strength to the awning setup, so that gusts of winds don't damaged the awning, or the roller tube.
