unable to deploy sunburst norseman awning (1989 bigfoot 17)

Hi all, this will seem like a newbie question but I just got my first RV, it's a 1989 bigfoot 17, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to deploy the awning that came with it. The brand/model of the awning is Sunburst Norseman. I could not find any owners manual so I'm a bit stuck. If anyone has any type of info manual, link to a video, anything that can help me figure this thing out I would really appreciate it.



thanks in advance

Stop by most any RV lot or service center and I'm pretty sure they would show you how.

bigfoot awning

On my Bigfoot awning, in order to unroll it I must flip a switch on the top of the left arm by the reel. I then can unroll it. It is "locked" otherwise and will only roll up until I flip the switch.

Looks great!

Could you provide a picture of the switch location for future reference?

Here are a few pics showing the location of the switch/lever and a closeup showing the lever itself.
