I haven't found it difficult to "unfurl" the rear awning and stick the support rods in place.
First, I get the rods from behind the bolts and let them dangle free.
Next, I pull the little awning out.
Then, I swing the little rods 360 degrees away from the trailer all the way around and let them come to rest in the support brackets. I ain't wantin' to get anywhere near the skin with a tensioned rod.

Use the video to learn the correct (easy) sequence. Basically unlatch and pull the awning out, hook on the support arms, and push and lock the upper extension arms one side at a time (keep a hand on the roller so it doesn't roll back). Then push up the roller to the desired height while holding out the release knob, on side at a time (you may need a step stool if you're short). Taking down is the opposite. Pretty easy.

One feature I really like about the new power option is the ability to stop it's deployment at any position.
