Berkshire Awning Remote

Hello all,

After reading about and learning the systems on our new to us 2014 Berkshire 390BH-60, I've only got one system that has me stumped - the awning remote. The awning works as advertised (in & out) but I haven't got a chance to test the sensitivity control in low, med, or high retract. My issue is that I have the remote and I can't seem to set it to work. Is there a switch that needs to be turned on or near the awning motor, or is there a start procedure I need to follow. I read in another FR section to push the start button , wait 3-5 seconds, and then push the in or out button. I followed this process and got nothing. Battery lights up the indicator, so I believe the battery is good.

Any advisements? Not a crisis, but I like stuff to work.

Fred Hardy

Fred I believe the switch setting for that is not by the remote but as you walk in the door on the right side where all the switches are there is one cluster there for the awning with these settings.

Berkshire Awning Remote

Stored my remote someplace ?? Use it one time to show my son in law I had something he didn't. (Family thing). Not really sure why I would ever need a remote for the awning. The motion control switch should be right inside door with all the other switches. Salesman, lights etc.

Does your remote have the pull up antenna? If yes the battery only last a year in that type. The one without the antenna seams to last several years. I have the antenna and my buddy does not. Special 12V battery. PIA.

Silver - the remote does have the pull out antenna. It's around 2 years old now, so replacement seems to be in order. Thanks.

I didn't even realize you could set the wind sensor from the remote. Like others, I used it once to see it work, now it resides in my sock drawer in my S&B house.
