Electric awning quit working

So Iím out camping this weekend and Iím setting up my camper and push the switch to extend the awning and nothing happens. The last time I went out camping which was a couple months ago the awning was still working with no problems. I replaced the 15amp fuse it was on and that didnít help so when I get home Iím going to replace the switch. Iíve checked Amazon for a replacement motor and looks like they cost around $70. Anyone have any experience in this situation for some advice? Thanks

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

I've had occasional problems with my power awning and traced it to low voltage going to the motor.

My power awning was an after market add on and they tapped into a wall light for power. I now turn off all lights, etc if I'm having problems with it moving slowly or not at all.

I also lubricate all the moving points with silicon spray every year or so.
