AE Weather Pro Awning Issue

Hello, I am new to these forms but so far this place has been a wealth of knowledge!

My question- I have a 2008 Fleetwood Providence 40X and I am having issues with my awning. It has the AE Weather Pro Awning and I cant get the awning to open. It was working fine and suddenly stopped. I had the rig detailed before it stopped working so not sure if something happened when it was washed?

Regardless, When I hit the switch over the passenger door to open the unit nothing happens. When I click the switch to close it, you can hear it click. I have pulled the cover off of the controller inside, the fuse is fine. I have tried it with the wind sensor plug unplugged from the controller and still no luck. I have replaced the switch and still no luck. I have unplugged the power to the unit to try and reset the unit- no luck.

Any other suggestions on what to check? I have no idea where the wind sensor is located (crawled up on the roof and didnt see anything) to determine if that might be an issue.

We bought the rig used and I cant find any sort of remote/key fab for it. I read that there is a wind sensor disable on the remote.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Normal wind sensors work by applying power to the motor when the wind picks up speed. Actually it is a temp sensor and when the wind increases it causes a temp drop which closes the sensor circuit and causes the motor to retract the awning.
If the wind sensor is normally a open circuit unplugging the connector would make no difference. You could try using a jumper wire on the sensor connector to create short circuit. Sounds like when you hit the close button and hear a click then you are getting power to the system.
