1972 ZIP Dee Awning

I can’t seem to even figure out how to open this awning up. Can anyone give me some insights on how I can do this? Click image for larger version

It doesn't seem to be a zipdee. The arms don't look like any I've seen on zipdees

I'll try to get some pics tomorrow. If it is the same awning I have there are latches which hold the arms to the side of the coach while traveling.
You slide the latches up to release the arms. It is a 2 person job to deploy the awning.

Just went out and looked. There is a pin sticking out of the back of each arm. About 7' off the ground. Push in on the arm and push up on the pin. It should move about 1/2" and unlock the arm. At the bottom of each arm on the side is a bolt with a knob. Loosen the bolt to allow the inner arm to slide inside the outer arm.
There is another bolt with a knob on the back of each arm to hold the awning in position once deployed.
Again! This is a 2 person job. One on each arm.

Thanks! You are right, it was not a zip Dee. It is a “travel-awn”
