The rain fly on this tent doesn't drain well because of the horizontal poles along the edge of the roof of the tent. consequently the water pools above these poles and the pressure makes the fly leak. When it is really burdened, it can collapse the tent and bend the poles. I have to get up frequently on rainy nights and push the water off the fly. Otherwise it is an amazing tent. The high roof is great, no bending over, and there is plenty of room to move around and organize your stuff. the row of windows on the front provides an amazing view and lots of fresh air. It's almost like a screen house instead of a tent.

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.
Peg out 2 back pegs of inner tent. Peg out 2 front then side pegs.

Place porch poles through holes at front of porch, zip door sides down with one person holding poles upright and taut and peg out door. Peg sides all along making sure they do not touch inner tent. Fix guy ropes.
Are the are pins attached to the pole attachments tabs at the corners along the bottom or farther up the sides at the corners? If they are at the corners a few feet off the ground, they are probably for the rain fly. If they are ground level they could be for an attachment that may not come with your tent like a vestibule. They could also be used for securing the tent after it has been rolled up. In either case here is a link to your tent that might be helpful. Just scroll down and click on the product manual link.
