ZipDee Awnings

The may seem silly, but I am not sure how to open the door side (largest) awning...
I have a 31' Sovereign.

The other two on it (rear and opposite entry door) were easy....

Can anyone help?

I'll try!

I found instructions on the Zip Dee website! Scroll down to OPERATION at this link: Awnings By ZipDee

My awning on the side is the Curved/Contor model, but it has the locking mechanism that is shown for the Straight/Universal. Zip Dee said they added that lock to some of the 70's models only.

If you have any problems at all, call Zip Dee. They are very helpful!

Thanks for the links and video. I got my awning open yesterday, but knew it wasn't right somehow. Now I know what I did wrong. This thread has been a real boon for me.
