AE awning retracts itself with no wind??

Had an interesting night. Awoke at 2:45am to our Co2 detector going off, but to a constant screech, not beeping as described in the manual. While sitting outside to figure out how to correct the Co2 alarm, reset didn't work, our awning rolls up by itself in the dead calm of 3am, ugh. This is our shake down run with this new to us 5er so we buttoned it up and went home to sleep. I'm going to replace the Co2 due to age and hope that takes care of the problem. The awning has me scratchin my head though, any ideas? I tried to locate the 12v fuse panel but half a sleep in the dark I gave up. The panel on the left side basement indicated this but only saw the inverter. Any guidance on this fuse panel would be appreciated greatly. We have a 2010 Nu-Wa Discover America 363RSB w/wind sensor turned on.

My first guess would be the battery going dead. Did you check that the 12V power was good?

Currently hooked to shore power, battery reads 13.7 and rest of the coach seems to be just fine. I am replacing the Co2 detector with a new one though, way past due I've learned. I now know that leaving the awning open overnight could lead to a bad morning (damage wise) so I won't be relying on the wind sensor to cover my tail, literally.
