Awning

We have a Coachmen Freelander and have never used the manual awning on our trips. I was shown how to open and close it during our walk through and it looked very simple. However, don't remember the proper steps and want to open and close it to make sure there's no cracking in the fabric or leaks on it. I've checked the Coachmen manual and there's nothing there on it.

Could someone please post the simple steps to open it.

Also, is there any annual maintenance needed to keep the fabric from drying out?

Thanks

It may sound ridiculous but that is a cool video. I just realised that my center strap is missing which would make it a whole lot easier to put out the awning. I bought my camper used from someone who never used it so they didnt know anything about it either.

The strap is probably there, just got rolled up in the awning. Unlock the awning roller and arms like you would to pull it down with the strap. But instead get on a ladder or in the doorway where you can reach up and start to unroll it by hand. The strap will probably appear in a roll or two.
