Old dometic awning question

So im used to an awning that legs mount to the side of the rig, you flick the reverse spring switch and it allows for easy roll out. This on has none of that... and it seems REALLY hard to unroll. the only way to keep it from rolling back up is to tighten the arms really tight, .. then the legs just sit on the ground? just awkward or is it correct?

its not correct,most likly the spring on the inside of the tube is sprung.ive taken a few of them apart and they are difficult to put back together and remount to the vehicle.the easiest solution would be a new awning installed by a dealer,or you could just roll it out and back in by hand,add a bungee cord to lock it down when rolled in,so it wont try to unroll while driving
