I don't have any trouble with ours at all. I just fumble around with other stuff, until my wife finally does it.

I have done it a few times, but I make sure no one is watching as I analyze it carefully, and then get it on the third or fourth try.

I understand now why in ancient cultures the women would set up camp while the men went off into the woods supposedly hunting.


I am thinking of getting a pair of Red Green suspenders so other campers will better understand my behavior.
