AE Weather Pro awning

My awning has a ghost. It is set to roll up at 25 mph wind. Mine will come in at any heat glaring down on sensor, usually 85 + degrees.

I have never heard of anyone awnings retracting because of heat.

Any suggestions?

ae weather pro awing

Welcome to iRV2! Great to have you on board!
The A&E WeatherPro patio awning does have a temperature sensor as well as a wind sensor, I understand situated or incorporated together. The temp sensor is designed to retract the awning at temperatures below 32* F, but not aware of any intended high temp response. I'll check the Owner's Manual when I return to our MH later to see if that sheds any further light on the subject (assuming you haven't already done so).
A poster in another thread did mention experiencing problems retracting the awning in higher temps e.g. 85* F rather than the automatic closure occurring with your unit.
I have not personally experienced either issue. Looking forward to comments of others.

I read about the low temp setting at 30f and below. It may be a faulty sensor, I just don't know. Thank for your rapid reply.

My AE awning is lucky to retract when I push the button. NEVER retracts from wind and fills with water in the rain. Certainly will not retract when holding water. Would love to have a good old fashioned manual awning.

I checked the WeatherPro Owner's Manual. As you are probably already aware, there is no reference to any high temperature trigger for the sensor. BTW, it appears the wind/temperature sensor is one integral unit.
