2019 DRV FullHouse LX455, Rear Awning won't retract

This is not my rig, I'm helping a friend who is a Marine vet. They have already postponed their departure by 2 days while trying to get their rear awning retracted fully... It always stops 12 in short of being fully closed.

The rear awning is made by Carefree of Colorado and my best guess is that it is a Mirage model. He doesn't have a manual, but we've been reading a PDF file online that seems to be the appropriate instructions. We are able to control the extension by turning the trim pots as indicated. However, the retraction seems to be unaffected when turning the trim pot for that effect. The instructions indicate that turning the trim pot changes the runtime of the motor... Apparently it is not a limit switch - it is a factor of timing. This seems strange to me, if you manually extend the awning just 25%, how would the retract feature know to run the motor only 25% of the full retract time?

Does anybody have experience with this issue? I know he would really appreciate any/all input. Thank you!

It's a 2019 DRV FullHouse LX455
