    Complete virgin at this, but all going well except for new privacy room for Fiamma F45 i Plus. Front OK. Sides a bit odd. How does the 'clip on system' affix to the awning at the van end? It all seems loose & there is definitely nothing to clip-on to. Fiamma instructions are quite poor.:Sad:

    If it's the same as mine, there are 2 grey plastic blocks that slot into the canopy housing and then lock in with 2 screws.
    The clip end frames sit on these blocks.

    DVD supplied but unfortunately no close-ups of the important bits, so its really difficult to see exactly where the ends of the support struts slot in.:Smile:

    :ROFLMAO::Eeek:If you have watched the dvd it will show you the 2 grey plastic clips, these are fitted into the main awning rail and should be centre to the awning sheet edges, the rail ie clip system then lays on this fitting and also fits on to the top of the awning leg when in place the round side should be outside and the flat side inside now is the time to wind back the awning until taut and then place the top screw sections in place.
    I have to say the two fitting ends are complete rubbish in design but there you go.
    I have a spare dvd if you should want it.

    a tip

    I guy gave me a tip, which is to thread the sides onto the bar BEFORE you offer the bar up to the awning rail. I always assemble it myself without the aid of a ladder or stool (If you drop the legs to the minimum height until u fixed it) and always manage to get it fixed within about 10/15 minutes.....apart from the pegging out. I usually just stick in a few pegs at first if it's not too windy and and then stick in a few later at my leisure.

    Fiamma 45 i Plus

    Thanks for all replies. It seems that the Privacy Room for the F45 i PLUS is a compromise. Basically it doesn't fit & has to be ' modified' to fit. - if fit is the right word. We have had to trim off an extra 1 cm or so to get the struts to clip in & we have to 'wrap-around' the sides around the poles. I will slide the sides on before slotting on the strut. It is all but impossible to do it any other way. :cry:

    ahhh

    In the same situation as yourselves, we bought a privacy room, with it came the F45i clip system, we have the Grey plastic brackets to fit in side the canopy housing but have to say looking at the video the ends on our clip system look nothing like the ends in the video, also the inside of our canopy housing is flat where the one in the video has a groved section running inside it.

    Our canopy is the F45ti, chatted with a lovely helpful young lady at Johnscross, she put us onto Darren, so we sent a load of photos of what we had, unfortunately he is now up at the show in Birmingham so everything on hold until he gets back.

    It`s raining her now and we are fed up with messing about with it all. :rain:

    Hi be warned if you don't get a reply it is because we have had problems for a couple of days with our emails and yours might not have got through.

    There are a selection of videos here >> http://www.johnscrossshop.co.uk/pages.php?pageid=14

    What a load of ..................... palaver, completely detracts from the conception of portability, mobility. Would be a damn site quicker to get a pallet load of breeze block and build an extension. I think this is a good case for these windbreaker thingymajigs.
