Awning ignition interlock

When I first got my TT, I remembered reading this and tried it and the awning extended. I just thought I was misunderstanding so I ignored it. I have been seeing stuff about awnings unrolling in transit so I went back and looked this up and tried it and it still does extend when the car is running. So I guess it's a malfunction.....? Anyone else tried theirs?

(Can't get windows 10 to insert photo so will type some of it out)

Prepare awning for travel
Verify ignition interlock is working correctly before traveling with RV. If awning responds to switch with ignition in ON position, accidental operation during transit could occur. The awning MUST be disable and serviced by a qualified service technician......
With awning fully closed, test ignition interlock system.
a. With vehicle ignition in ON position, attempt to open awning.
b. If awning does NOT respond (remains closed), the ignition interlock is functioning.
(Then it says to pull the fuse and get it serviced.

That paragraph probably applies to MHs, since someone riding in the back could accidently hit the awning switch. No way that would work on a TT or FW without special wiring in the umbilical cord.

Well that makes sense. Thinking about it, that section was in the awning brochure rather than the TT manual.

I read various things on forums about securing the awnings with straps or locks and some of these reference non-manual awnings. Anyone feel that is necessary on these travel trailers?
