A&E 12volt door awning

Has anyone had any experience repairing this awning???? Ours just didn't work on our last trip out. It makes a little grunt noise so I know there is voltage there. The awning is closed so there is no way to trouble shoot it until you can get it opened I called A&E and got no help from them. Their policy so I was told is to help dealers and not the retail customer. Call or take it to a dealer was the only thing they would tell me. Sounds like motor or a relay??? Also looks like a switch to another manufacturer on our next MH.

I fine that it's not always a good idea to try an fix something your self if you don't realy know what you are doing.
You could save your self a lot of greaf if you just took it to eather Camping World or to a R.V. Repair shop.
Some things we can fix then there are things we can not fix.
There was a time that I thought that I knew what I was doing and low and behold a few years down the road it pops up again only this time I had no choise but to take it to a shop to have it fix to the tune $6,200.00. Think about it.
Just a thought.

They are notorious for the motors getting water in them and going bad. The easiest way is to remove the awing from the coach, make repairs and re-install it.
