Automatic Awning becomes loose while MH is in motion

I have a 2008, 40 ft, HR MH that the awning at the top comes loose while the coach is in motion. I stop and roll it back into place and start down the road and it becomes loose again. It only comes out just a little bit from it protective shell but you can see the arms moving in the wind while traveling while hoping it does not unfurl all the way. Is this caused by the motor being weak and needs replacing or because it is not seating properly? Is there something I have over looked, this just started on our last trip. While it is parked, it rolls up as it should.

Sounds like the brake for the motor assembly is bad. You may need to replace the motor assembly to correct the problem.
