There is a panel on the back which opens up to expose a 120 v house current charger. You must use an extension cord (not supplied) which will fit in the narrow channel. The supplied 12 volt car charger plugs in to the bottom of the handle. A red LED lights up when either charger is used. The manual suggests 24 hours of charging before use. My condolences.

Is it the tent with the plastic staves? If so, just put them together and insert the rounded end into the equivalent hole on the bottom of the tent. Sit the tent upright with the doors open. Reach into the top of the tent and push/pull the chrome lever at the top until it locks into position. Sometimes you have to wiggle it around a little to get it to lock. When it does lock, you will know it because the tent is rigid. This is a great tent. We have used one for over 40 years! When you want to disassemble it, just pull down on the chrome lever at the top of the tent and reverse the procedure.

Unpack your tent supplies.[1] Once you've found a good area to set up camp, it's time to unpack your things. It's a good idea to pack all of the parts out at once. Assembling your tent will be fastest if you don't have to unpack each item one at a time. Keep all parts nestled in one place so you can keep account of everything. Because the list of supplies depends on the specific type of tent you're using, here are a few different types of tents you can consider:
  • A-Frame tents are the most typical and common type of tent for personal use. They're the easiest to erect and usually come with extras like a rain-fly and weather tarp.
  • Tunnel tents are different from typical "A-Frame" tents because they are structured by two long poles that both run the width of the tent. This creates a wider interior with more headspace. However, they're not nearly as stable when it comes to wind.
  • Dome tents are generally the largest, and usually reserved for larger groups in camping. Although they're quite a bit bigger, they're generally very easy to pitch.
  • Lay down a ground cloth.[2] No matter how much you clear the area, there may still be twigs and other debris that could puncture your tent or make the surface otherwise uncomfortable. A ground cloth should be big enough to encompass the space of at least most of your tent. The added cushion of a ground cloth will lead to a more comfortable rest.
  • Insert your tent poles through the frame.[3] Once you've gotten all your tent parts out, slide the support poles through the body of the tent. Lie the tent frame out. That way, you can make sure you're sliding the poles through the right slots. This is arguably the most time-consuming part of tent assemblage, but it's very straightforward.
    • In the case of a "tunnel tent", make sure the poles are parallel from one another
    • Raise the tent. If the support poles have joints, make them rigid. The poles are going to have a pre-set frame to them for the main body of the tent. Help the tent up by lifting parts of it. The poles should hold the frame in place. If not, secure loose parts of the poles or extend them as needed.Hammer in your tent pegs.[4] Using a mallet or a nearby rock, take the spikes that come with your tent and hammer them into the ground. This will stabilize the tent and make sure it doesn't move around. If you don't have tent pegs for whatever reason, you can improve by using sturdy sticks and pushing them into the soil.Set up the rain-fly.[5] It's important to keep in mind that tents on their own are usually not waterproof. This is where the rain-fly comes in. A rain-fly is an additional piece you set overtop the tent. There should be something along the line of latches on the roof of your tent to secure the rain-fly in place. Even if you're pretty sure there will be no rain, it doesn't hurt to install it nonetheless. It will ensure all of your tent equipment stays in one place, and prepare you for unforeseen rain showers.Move your things into the tent. Once the tent is set up, you can equip the interior. Because there isn't usually much space in a tent, you should decide which things are alright to store outside, and which things should be kept inside. Sleeping bags are an obvious must in your tent. Crates and hard-cased storage can be left outside.
      • If there's a risk of bears in the area you're camping, it is strongly recommended you keep food out of the tent. If a bear comes, you don't want him rummaging into your tent because he picked up the scent of granola.

Unfortunately, the web site given in the link above is no longer in service, so it may be difficult to find instructions other than those at the link.

Quoting from the link above: '

1) Lay out the tent flat on the ground, be sure to stretch floor to eliminate slack. Drive a stake into each corner loop, then drive the remaining stakes into the side loops.
2) Install the poles by first separating them by their color code. Yellow poles make up the center section. Red poles make up the right and left sides. Slide the yellow poles through the center pole sleeve. Slide the red roof poles through the right and left pole loops of the tent.
3) Raise the tent. Assemble the yellow upright poles and attach them to the yellow roof poles. Raise the center of the tent to its approximate height, by using the quick clamps on the bottom of the yellow center uprights. Assemble the red left and right support poles, attach the support poles to the roof poles. Place the side support poles on the ground near the side stake loops. Adjust the placement and the height of the poles until the tent stands firm.
