Entry Door Awning Switch

Hello...I tried searching this forum to no avail however I am pretty sure there must be some sort of instructions for the SEARCH option.

My 2009 Camelot 40QDP has a powered awning over the entry door with a flaky switch that I would like to replace. My question: Has anybody out there dealt with this & if so, where did you find a replacement switch? Veurink's apparently has a "substitute" for $56.30 plus shipping but it is not the same switch & $56.30 seems a little high for a simple switch.

Thanks in advance,

billgr currently in Mesa, AZ

Northwest RV Supply would be a great source for the switch.

Funky reversing switch it is. Two poles for power in, and three poles to reverse polarity depending on switch push.

Did you use a voltmeter to test the switch? If not, do you hear a subtle clicking sound in the awning when you toggle the switch? I have replace my motor three times now, maybe four.

I have not used a voltmeter on the switch yet...we discovered that if one will "play" with the switch long enough the awning will eventually go in. I have acquired a replacement switch that I hope to get installed tomorrow...I will post the result.

Does the awning go out ok, but just not in?

When you said you 'had to play with it', that reminded me that my awning rolls out just fine, but the motor barely has enough torque to roll it back in most of the time. I have to keep bumping the switch to coax it along. It does move in faster if I help it by pulling on the arms, tho.

My 07 Neptune was the same way. Rolled out fantastic, barely rolled in. Sometimes even had to help it roll the first few feet. I read a thread about the wire being too small of gauge (I believe it was Chuck B that helped me). I ran 8 gauge wire from the FRB over to the console with the awning switch and that helped tremendously. It doesn't just fly in now but rolls pretty decent. You can check the amount of voltage drop before and after with a VOM and verify. I've heard some folks had about 10 volts at the motor at the top of the arm. HTH
