Is there anything that can be done to make my Weather Pro Awning work correctly. It is approximately 1 year old now. My RV dealer has adjusted it repeatedly and has now installed the third control circuit board and roof sensor since I bought my motor home. With the wind sensor engaged, the awning still rolls up when there is any kind of vibration, (walking around inside the MH, closing bay doors, etc.). No wind is required to make the awning roll up.

Hi Bud10,
I have the same awning and had the same problem as you. This post may be a bit long, but here is how I fixed my mystry awning retracting (some dealers do not know this). Your location of Arizona, perked up my ears. I live in South Florida.

The problem we both have is heat. I called Newmar and they got A&E on the line. The automatic retraction thermistor has a 120 degree F limitation. When the thermistor senses 120 degrees, the awning will retrack. What I did to fix the problem was to make a "sandwich" and velcro strip (industrial strength velcro) to the top of the sensor. The sandwich has a core of corregated cardboard, wraped in aluminum foil, wraped in clear shipping tape. When doing all this be careful not to block any of the openings to the wind sensor. So far, it has not blown off and there have been no mystery retractions.

If you have a control board with dip switches, you can change the settings to determine how sensitive the retraction activates. For the following settings, off = toward the switch number and on = away from the switch number. Either switch #2 or 3 should be in the on position. Never have both 2 and 3 on or off at the same time.

1 = always off
2 = on 3 mph
3 = on 6 mph
4 = off = more wind needed to retract, on = less wind needed to retract.
5 = always off

An example of the most sensitive setting is:
1 = off
2 = on
3 = off
4 = on
5 = off

The sandwich should fix your mystery retractions. Consider doing the sanwich first and try it for a while. Good luck and let me know if this works.

Call me old fashioned, but for me I just turned off the automatic switch when it started acting strange.
When we go out somewhere we role it in.
When we're here we adjust it as needed.

It's a nice gimic to have, but not a necessesity of life. If the motor goes south then we use the old rod with a hook and the included motor bypass kit that came with the awning.

The more fancy stuff i have, the more fancy stuff to repair.$$$$
