Power Awning Prewire

I'm planning to change my manual CoC awning to an electric Travelr and would like to know if any other HR owners have done this. My front fuse panel has a 15A labeled for a Pwr Awning and was hoping there might be a pre-wire run over to the curbside wall. I got my hopes up for things like this when I learned from another member that the roof was pre-wired for a satellite receiver. That made the install much easier. I searched for this to no avail, so thought I'd ask. TIA

Gary-

Can't say for sure, but our 2008 appears to have the wiring for a power awning switch. Look inside the sink cabinet, the forward outside corner. Another way to get to the wiring is by removing the switch plates on the cabinet exterior, to the left of the entry door.

I have no idea of how to get to the wiring from the switch to the awning. It probably has a connector, buried in the wall behind the cabinet over the sink. The exterior light wiring follows the same path, I think.

THX Mark. The wires going up to the porch light are a good suggestion. I'll use my tracer tool with a tone on the wires to see if one of them are there. Hope they did and this will be fun.

Gary-

Drawing attached- may or may not apply to your coach.

The reason I say our coach (and maybe yours) could be prewired is because in that bundle of wires under the sink are some fairly large gauge wires (10 or 12 AWG), attached to some unused connectors. There aren't many calls for that much current in that area, except for a motor- such as an awning would take.

Your diagram is very useful showing where Monaco put the dash switches, connectors and the roof harness / connector. i did note that your 2008 diag shows the floor harness F-415 which corresponds to my fwd basement fuse panel relay C415(F) labeled for a 15A fuse #59 for a POWER AWNING. good place for me to put my wire tracer signal and then go searching behind the dash panel. I know there a bunch of open ended connectors in there, so this is a good start. From there it may lead me to the roof bundle / connector.

Where in the world did you get that diagram for your mh? I'm a diy'er and would go to some effort to get the diagrams for my 2005 HR Admiral-se 37 PCT. THX again Mark
