Welcome to iRV2. Consider, in the future, posting about your Newmar coach in the Newmar forum. It is located in the Owners Corner. On the main iRV2 page scroll down to find the Owners Corner and the Newmar Owners forum.
In addition to what has been posted on the awning, the awning will auto retract based on temperature as well as wind. The temperature auto retract is not adjustable. Around 32 degrees F on the low side and around 130 degrees F on the high side. These temps may seem hard to get to however, up on the roof the temps are a whole different story. I made a "shade" for my temp/wind sensor chimney. Go to Step 1 A&E Auto Retract Sensor With Reflector - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery
for the first picture. Scroll through the next 3 pictures to see what I did. It stopped the auto retracting for what seemed no reason at all.
Do you know how to turn off the auto retract feature.
On the front visor problem, all that is done to go up or down is to reverse the motor voltage. The problem could be:
1. bad motor
2. loose power wire at the switch (or any connection)
3. loose ground wire where the reversal happens
On the KVH problem, post the question in the Technology forum (close to the bottom of the main iRV2 page. The super techies hang out there.
On the slide problem, consider contacting Newmar Customer Service at 800-731-8300. Have your coach number or VIN when you call.
