Re: general instruction manuel
Assemble all the poles, thread poles through sleeves, connect one end of the poles to the tent, stand up one by one! North face and sierra design tents are tricky at first but get easier the more times you do it!

Select a flat camping area and clean the area of sticks and rocks. Remove the tent from the bag and spread out the tent body with the floor on the ground. Assemble the tent poles by connecting the attached sections at the ferrules. Set the poles on the ground and separate by size.
Locate the three long sleeves on the tent body. One sleeve is horizontal over the screen room and the other two cross the main tent body to create an "X". Locate the three long poles and slide one through each sleeve. Place the corresponding pins in the end of the poles. The poles will flex and erect the tent body. This step is best attempted with two or more people.
Attach the clips to the exposed sections of the tent poles. The clips are attached to the ten fabric and will add rigidity to the tent. Locate the next largest pole and insert it through the sleeve on the screen house. Locate the metal grommets where the screen room meets the main tent and place each end of the pole in a grommet.
Locate the two smallest poles. These are for the side rooms. Insert one pole through each of the side room sleeves. Attach the ferrule of one steel pole to each end of the side room pole. Insert the corresponding pins in the end of the upright poles to support the side rooms.
Pull on each end of the tent to ensure the floor is tight. Use a rock to pound stakes through the ground loops on the tent. Place the floor mat in front of the screen room door and use stakes to secure the mat to the ground.
Place the fly on the tent and make adjustments until the shape of the fly matches the tent. The fly will only cover the top of the screen room and the entire body of the main tent. Locate the D-rings on the base of the tent and attach the fly hooks to the closest rings. This will tighten the fly to the tent body.
Locate the guy ropes on the fly. Pull the ropes to the ground at an angle and pound stakes through the loops to anchor the tent to the ground.
Remove the tent, poles, stakes and tent rope of the dome tent from the Northwest Territory sack. Locate a large flat area and remove any sticks and rocks from the ground.
Lay the tent fabric on the ground with the bathtub style floor face down. Pull the corners of the fabric tight and rotate the tent so the door is facing in the direction you want. Use a hammer to stake the corners in the ground.
Assemble the two long poles to their full length. The pole segments are connected by chords and will easily snap into place. Slide one pole through the diagonal sleeve on the top of the tent. Slide the other pole through the other diagonal sleeve to form an "X" with the poles.
Place the end of each pole in the corresponding grommet. The poles will bend and the shelter will be erected.
Assemble the two small poles. Slide one pole in the doorway sleeve and the other in the back window sleeve. The poles will bend slightly to create a rain peak on the door and window.
Pull the doormat tight and pound stakes through the loops on each corner. Pull the tent rope tight on the back of the tent and pound a stake through the rope loop to anchor the tent to the ground.
Check your manual, or look for instructions online, but the basic plan is...
1. Lay it out so the door faces where you want it.
2. Stake down the corners, yes- even if it is 'free-standing' you usually want to do this.
3. Figure out where the poles go. They usually go through cloth sleeves, or metal rings, or clips or something. They also go in arcs that may or may not cross at the top. (a manual REALLY helps with this!)
4. Slide a pole in place. if it goes through a sleeve, you usually slide it in first, then stick the ends of the poles on little metal studs at the corners. If it clips on, you usually build the pole, then run it from stud to stud, then clip the tent to the arch you made.
5. Repeat for all poles
6. Pull the rain fly in place, clip on at each pole end and as needed.
7. Pull out and stake other ties as available. This gives you more interior room, more stability and protection in weather, and improves ventilation.
Clean the ground of any rocks,
logs or big sticks. Open the stuff sack and pull out all of the
contents. Pull the poles out of their pole bag and set them aside.
Remove the tent stakes and set them next to the tent.
Lay out the tent poles and
assemble them. Push the rod blanks together to make the tent poles that
will support the mesh tent body.
Unroll the mesh tent over the
cleared ground. Take care not to step on or walk on the mesh panels.
Avoid sticks and snags, as the mesh rips easier than nylon tent fabric.
Clip the Timbertop tent pole
clips to the poles. There are no tent pole sleeves because Timbertop
uses external pole clips for its mesh tents. Criss-cross the tent poles
and push the tent pole tips into the metal holes at the end of the pole
clip lines. The mesh tent will now be standing upright.
Place one tent stake into the
ground and through a pole strap stake hole. Pull the tent out as you
insert the stake to keep the mesh panels tight. Stake down each pole
strap around the perimeter of the tent. Unzip the doors to enter the
tent. Zip up the doors quickly after entry to keep bugs and insects out
of the tent.
Remove the tent and poles from the packaging. Select an indoor area with a high ceiling or an outdoor area without overhead obstacles. The poles are not excessively long but they will be difficult to assemble without space.
Lay the Princess tent with the floor on the ground. Pull on each corner to tighten the floor. Assemble the two tent poles by inserting the male sections into the metal ferrules.
Slide one pole through each of the diagonal sleeves. Place the end of each pole in the fabric pockets on the corners. This will flex the poles and raise the tent body.
Place the fabric roof on top of the tent. Attach the hooks on each corner of the roof to the loops on the top of the pole sleeves. The roof fabric will stretch tight and cover the ventilation gap in the tent ceiling.
I cannot find exact instructions but I did find a general guide to assembly. they are usually very easy to assemble.
A standing fan is a portable fan that has a set of three oscillating blades on a long neck. The neck, also called the pole or the leg, is mounted on the floor. Standing fans have evolved from their origins as noisy accessories that blew away papers in their vicinity to silent fans whose direction can be controlled remotely. When placed at a convenient location, a standing fan can distribute air evenly to the entire room. Its speed can be controlled, and many standing fans can be programmed to stop at a set time.
The only requirement for installing a standing fan is making sure it is near a power source. The entire unit can be assembled manually with only a screwdriver. A single standing fan, either an oscillating or pedestal fan, is very simple to assemble for basic home use.
Pole and Base
The first step is to lay the parts on a floor. Then assemble the pole on the base of the stand. This is very simple, because the grooves for the screws are already drilled, so the screws just need to be inserted and screwed in. Screwing the pole into the base of the fan is required on some models; on others, the pole and the base are molded together and no screws are needed.
Motor and Fan Installation
One some fans, you have to install the motor and oscillating arm to the pole. This again is done by screwing screws into predrilled holes. Grooves for long screws are at the top end of the pole, where they attach to the motor of the fan. Once the motor is placed on the top of the pole, insert the screws in the predrilled holes and tighten the screws. The next step is to wire the three blades. This is done by taking the wires from the motor and joining them to the sockets in the pole. This finishes the assembly procedure. To turn the fan on, ensure that the wires fit securely together. A loose connection cannot not only hamper the performance of the fan, it can also lead to problems such as electrical shocks or burning wires.
I recently borrowed a similar tent and this forum was all the instructions I had (so thanks, they helped). I have since found the instructions, scanned them and made them available to others (to view/print/download) at https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B1SdA-vKLONwZ05vTGZKdF9BTzQ Paul.
2 short poles A
2 longer poles B
1 medium pole C
Slide one assembled A pole through the pole sleeve at base
fold and fasten the velcro tab over the end of the inserted pole
repeat with other A pole on other side
Slide one assebled B pole through the pole sleeve at rafter. (across the body)
fold and fasten velcro tab
repeat with other pole
slide one assembled C pole through the pole sleeve at top (down the middle of the monster)
Put plastic mold at the end of the inserted pole into the pole at front
General tent setup instructions:
thread assembled poles through sleeves
connect one end of poles into tent corners
1 by 1 connect the other end of the pole, work front to back and the tent should assemble quite easy.
I wasn't able to find a manual, but after looking at the website, the tent looks fairly easy to set up.
Lay the tent out flat and peg down four corners. Then take the longest two poles and put them diagonally through the tent sleeves. Then, put the third pole (for the doorway) through it's sleeves.
Next, you'll have to put the pole point into the hole at either end. Then, go to the other end and bend the pole until you can get the other end in the corresponding hole. Do this for the other diagonal and the tent should be standing. The last one is the door pole
Last, lay the rain cover over the tent. There should be some hooks to strap the hood down near the poles. Don't worry about any strings, etc. Those are for high winds and almost never needed. Good luck
