Door awning malfunction

Can anyone guide me to the controller for the front door awning on a 2019 Allegro Bus?



It's a small Girard awning that operates off the spyder panel just inside the front door. The awning extends but will not retract. I can hear a faint clicking noise coming from the motor area when I press the retract button so I think power is there and the motor is likely bad. I'm under warranty for about 3 more weeks and Girard is telling me to disconnect to motor wires from the controller and test it with a 12V power source but I cannot locate the controller.

When you push the retract side of the button and you hear the click, can you also hear any other noise like a hum?
If your coach has the small cabinet over the door, you might remove the panel on the back side of the cabinet, controller might be in there.

advise to call Tiffin to find out where the controller is. also if you have a ladder, you can try bang gently the motor area. it may release the brushes inside and make it work temporary. it is amazing how bad are many new components.

Thanks Gary. I already have that panel off. No controller but I see 4 wires (3 yellow, 1 white) passing through a hole to the outside directly behind the awning. These travel behind the cabinets towards the front and appear to feed down the passengers side windshield pillar but I cannot locate them under the dash. Will try calling Tiffin but haven't had much luck with that lately....
