CareFree Patio Awning Control Box

My sister-in-law & her husband just bought a 2017 Bounder 35M and the patio awning is very sensitive to wind and retracts in a light breeze. They can't find the control box to turn it off/on. Can anyone lend their expertise? Thx

I have a Tiffin phaeton and the control box was located above driver and behind interior wall.

Not sure the carefree has a control box you can turn off. On my 2016 the control module is located in the bay with the inverter on the back wall. There is no ON/OFF to it tho. You can call carefree and get an updated module that supposedly is better to the wind auto retract issue.

Good Luck

CareFree says there is no control of the awning auto retract. There is a wind sensor mounted on one end of the awning leading edge and that it can be replaced under warranty at a dealership. It is preset to retract with X wind. Apparently there is a sensitivity issue with the new ones.
