It was below freezing outside and when I finally tracked down the noise it was coming from the box in the compartment. I switched the box to the disable mode and the noise stopped. As for the awning closing itself we've never had it do that yet and at Myrtle Beach with some of the wind gusts at the beach I really thought it would have closed.
We too have never had the wind close the awning, just the cold. I thought there was something wrong with the sensor so I took it to our local Dometic dealer (thank god it wasnt the FR dealer as they are a bunch of worms!) Anyway they tested the sensor and said it was fine, that the wind has to be consistant for more than a minute to activate and put the awning away. Doesn't give me much confidence that is for sure. I put it away manually now if we are going to be away or am unsure of it. I really like the convienience of the power awning but I miss the old manual one on our last rig that I could set up, tilt it, tie it down and forget it.
