Weather Pro automatic awning

I have a WeaterPro automatic awning opener that has fast flashing lights and dosnt work. Ligature says it might be a wind sensor issue.

1. Where is the wind sensor?

2. Anyone have any experience with this issue?

Lucky it was rolled in when I noticed the flashing lights!

My WeatherPro has the wind sensor on the top of the forward awning support, near the distal end. With the awning fully extended you may be able to see it from the front. A ladder will likely be needed to inspect it. I have heard that some have sensors on the RV roof.

By the way, my awning has a tendency to automatically retract when temperatures are high and sun is shining on the sensor - exactly when the awning is most useful. With a flat, 2-inch square of doubled aluminum foil stuck to the top of the sensor with a piece of doubled-over cellophane tape, it is better, but still will retract needlessly, but less often.

Could be mounted on the roof. Mine is and it is so sensitive that I flipped the bypass switch on the controller and never leave it unattended.

Ours was flashing and would not extend. Ended up being a bad circuit board.
I've read that insects can plug the sensor opening and cause it to malfunction.
