When using the jack it's not connected to tow vehicle. But it could be the battery. It fully discharged this winter and we've had some problems with it. Obviously. And I guess some forgetfulness on how things work on our part because we don't use the battery except for the jack.

Awning worked in April with shore power. Have not tried again since we got it out of storage for this trip, so possible that it's the fuse. We'll troubleshoot more this afternoon when we get home from work. Of course it decided to rain today, so we'll have to be a little more careful.

We are planning a few more trips this year and want the option of going without shore power.

Quick update. Awning is working on both shore and battery power. Could have been operator error.

Meanwhile the rest of the campground is wondering why your outside scare light keeps tuning on and off... Lol.

Good luck with that "fully discharged" battery. They have been known to never recover fully from that. Before I depended on it, I would go to a local auto store, and have them check it out.

Definitely operator error. DH pressing in instead of out.
