Wind Sensor Awnings & Party Lights

So Easter morning was great with a basket full of flamingo and palm tree party lights. Then we started talking about "what if the party lights are out and the wind sensor awnings automatically come in?" Anyone ever have this happen? We are new to having a motorhome and this is just one of the many questions that comes to mind. Thanks for your advise and comments.

I have the ability to shut off the wind sensor which I often do when I am around the coach. Mine is a little too sensitive anyway and I believe the awning comes in when it would not need to. That is my suggestion.

He has to use them as the Easter Bunny brought them to him, shut the sensor switch off when you hang the Dingo's & Palm Trees

Hi All and thank you for your input. And yes we did think about "don't put up the party lights"...but as it was pointed out the Easter bunny brought them. The MH is in the shop for warranty work so we can't look if we have a disconnect for the wind sensors. It came with a box full of the original manuals and I know I saw the one for the awnings. So as soon as it is back home we will be checking if we have a disconnect for them. Seems like the perfect answer. Thanks to everyone for their advise.
