That is the old style Dometic A&E WeatherPro awning wind sensor and housing.

You have (or had) An A&E Weather pro power awning.

That is the "lighthouse" Wind sensor..

First: It is very likely the worst wind sensor ever invented
Second: the wire that connectes it to the control box inside the coach is NOT a standard telephone wire, though if you need to extend it standard modular phone cable may work (The difference is how the ends are connected .

On standard pone cables if you lay the plugs side by side, tab up the wires could be numbered 1 2 3 4 on both plugs but on the A&E plug it is 1 2 3 4 and 4 3 2 1

Yup, they even put on one plug end backwards.. By design, says a lot for their quality.

They now use a motion sensor on one of the awning arms.. Supposed to be much better but since I do not have one. I can not say.

Good idea. Goes with the 'Zombie Response Vehicle' minor theme.

I never made Chief, I worked for a living.

The backward thing is because your looking at both sides of the same cable form the same side. If wire a is on the right side on one end and the left on the other (when viewing the connector from the same orientation -pins up and away from you) it's wired straight through. If they are the same then it's cross cable.

When you put plugs on the ends you have to know how it is going to be used. 'Handset to receiver' or 'receiver to wall' if my feeble mind remembers, one is straight through and the other cross wired.

If you are making modular phone ends with a crimper, as long as you make them both the same, it should work. The wall cord end is a little wider than the handset cord so the handset cord may not make contact in a wall outlet. I don't know what A&E does so YMMV. Doesn't make sense to use a non-standard type connection except to confuse the consumer

Then you should enjoy this one too. Some optional equipment was available to handle low coastal fogs, was this unit first owned along one of the oceans?

You should have loud alarm when it is up, and approaching bridges, with radio override that says 'Dive, Dive, Dive....'.


(We're such a helpful bunch!!!)

Best,
