Carefree awning problem solving

We own a 2016 Tiffin Phaeton. The Carefree awning does not extend. Any suggestions?

Is this a new problem? What test have you done? Do you know how to use a multi-meter? How long have you owned the coach?

Yes this is a new problem. We’ve checked circuit breakers. We do not have a multi meter with us. We’ve owned the coach for a year and a half.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I'm pretty sure that awning operates on 12VDC so it wouldn't be a breaker. Look in the 12VDC fuse panel for a blown fuse.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

The Carefree of Colorado Latitude patio awning has five wires going to the control module in the right end of the roll. The black (ground) and red (12 volt power) should be live all the time. The other three wires control the retract and extend and are only live when the switch is depressed. The awning power comes from a 15 amp fuse in the power center then through a relay for ignition interlock and another relay for remote operation (vega touch, rapid camp, firefly, etc). Trouble shooting consist of using a 12 volt battery to confirm the motor and control module are still working; then checking for proper operation of the relays. If all that is good, the you have a wiring or switch problem.
