If not, in the bedroom space, under the TV is the switch board, make sure all of the safety switches are on.
Just in side the front door is the awning pole. Towards the front of the van is a winding point, insert the pole and wind away. The awning legs are built into the front of the awning. Spring loaded, they drop down and at the right height the can be locked.
