Awning retract/extend issues with 2018 26.5BHS

2018 26.5BHS: The awning works intermittently. There are days it will retract and extend and there are days when nothing happens when the switch is activated.

Do you have the same results with the remote, or is this just at the panel?

Either remote or panel, it's the same results.

Ours died and wouldn't extend. Returned to the dealer for that and some other issues. Dealer said the wire connections inside the awning had disconnected, so I would check there first.

Had this same thing happen to our awning when we were in Alaska last summer- intermittent operation. Put a multimeter on the system and it appeared fine. Replaced the switch which made no difference. After having to finally use the hotwire connection from the motor directly to the battery, I happened to look at the elbow of the awning's arm that has the power cable running up to the motor. Due to all the flexing and rubbing, the insulation on the cable had worn through and was shorting out. It was strange as this shorting out on some occasions blow the fuse and other times the fuse remained intact. Electric tape to cover the wear spot and the awning has operated trouble free since. Look for a short somewhere.
