Hi Lance

Tug the mud-flaps in then you should be able to peg the sides down.

Tug the mudflaps in, push conduit through the loops and use three long straight pegs to hold it down. Angle the pegs at 45 degrees

towards the tent.

Tuck the mud flaps inside and use rubber rings you buy at camp shops looped to the tent loops, then peg the rings to the ground.

Daar is lede wat dieselfde doen....maar gebruik dan daai verstelbare verfpale. Jy kan ook self verstelbare pale maak met 22mm 20mm pyp en ozzie 

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

It all makes sense except mudflaps towards inside,I remember many years back even in army when we put mud flaps outside and covered them with soil.

Small trench was dug around the older tents to direct waterflow away from the tent. I see you do not have side awnings on the tent, so the plastic out to direct rainwater away from the tent into the small trench.

As for how to tie it to the ground with tne straps, read the instructions you got with the awning, or ask the person you procured it from.

Then let us know what they or the instruction booklet says.
