I just brought home my new to me pup. The previous owner was of little help teaching me what everything on it does (it was raining). The awning really has me puzzled. He stated that it didn't have any poles with it when he bought it, I figured no big deal, I'll just shoot down to Wal-Mart and buy some. BUT, I can't figure out how it's supposed to go up. There are no holes/grommets for poles to go into. Does anybody have any idea how this thing works? The outside grey water drain has me perplexed also. The diameter of the drain is about 1.5 inches and threaded. How am I supposed to get this reduced to a garden hose size to fit my portable waste water tank?
