I don't think there is a protective device at all going to a power awning. Just 12VDC power and a switch. I was just rewired the brand new camper.
Could just be a bad switch or loose connection. Wife and I just traded the Flagstaff 25KS for the Catalina 253 RKS and as I was tearing apart the new camper I found several crimp ends very loose and was able to just pull right off. I usually fix as I am installing my upgrades.
Here is a pic of the dimmer I installed for the awning LED lights. Right behind that panel is the switch for the lights and the power awning switch.
