How to manually extend Carefree Freedom Freestyle awning

I have a 2019 Southwind 34c with a Carefree of Colorado "Freedom Freestyle WM" awning. I damaged the awning and had to manually retract it to travel home. It will not extend electrically now. Does anyone know how to manually extend it? I suspect there is a blown fuse but I have not been able to find it to check. Any help would be appreciated.

A couple years ago mine "ate" up the wiring the double sided taped to the arms.
I had to manually extend the awning. If I recall correctly the motor needed to be removed. Make sure you secure the awning with bungee cords or something as once the motor is out it will extend all the way quickly. I thought that was all in the manual. Or it is possible I had support from Carefree directly from their phone.
I don't make it much on here anymore so will not see your reply to my comment. Drop me a direct message and when I come back on I will see it.
