Do you mean Carefree Spirit? If so, you are missing a part. There's supposed to be a squarish looking part that goes over that release peg and moves it. That square part attaches to the sliding remote release mounted in the vertical arm. You can see it in the following link, "L" or #7. It's at the top end of that part.
You should be able to get that part from an RV dealer. It looks like the tip part simply broke off here.
Remember, all Sunlines came with Dometic A&E awnings from the factory, so very few people would have pictures of this type of awning unless their awning was replaced with a Carefree. I'm personally a fan of Carefree products, their products are outstanding and from what I'm told, their customer service is even better.
Based on how I think the release works, you should still be able to work the awning without that part, it just means you'll have to pull the release peg manually or with the awning rod.
