Entry door awning no worky

My entry door awning was working fine. Closed it because of pending storm. 2 days later, tried to open it and nothing happens. No indication of anything when pressing switch or even holding it ext or ret. I've checked the fuse in left front compartment and even swapped it with another, but still nothing. Any ideas, something I missed?

Download this folder for future use as well as drilling down to the "awning over the door" folder.

There is a factory manual with post it notes on it. Mouse over any yellow post it like notes and they should appear if not already showing.

I chased an intermittent problem with mine 2008 SKQ for years and changed the motor out about three times. Ultimately ran new power wire from the awning down to the switch area in the arm rest area of the passenger seat.

There was too much voltage loss caused by a bad connection or a wire that had been nicked at the factory.

In any case, pop the switch panel out on the face of the arm rest and you can chase the wires for the awning there. Finding a decent ground it the real trick so I added a nut to the seat pedestal with a ring type terminal pinched in.. Now I have a good ground while working there.

Do you hear any indication of it trying to work? That is, does it clunk at all when you press the button?

Be very very careful working on the awning from a ladder. The arm is spring loaded and can knock you off the ladder if not aware of it.

Removing the awning when it is closed can be a real challenge.

After chasing so many problems with mine I pop riveted some small tabs that drop below the awning and I screwed those into the side of the rv versus trying to get at the screws that are hidden behind the awning.

There are a couple of large screws holding the awning to the side and once those are off you slide the awning towards the front of the RV to get it off the track.

I hope this helps a bit.

take a look above the awning and look for where the power comes through the coach wall. I have one of these. (yours might be a 4 pin, but casing looks similar)

It's a common failure point.

Thanks all! I was doing research and pulled the 4 pin connector. I thought it was power to patio awning as I didn't see anything going to entry awning. Connection was barely loose but it did look a little dirty. Plugged it in a couple times and retightened it. Tried switch again. First time nothing, then bingo, it's working. Odd. Don't know if it's switch or connection. Think I'll get some dielectric grease and pull switch for loose connection.
