Awning power

Awning won't go in or out. Checked the 12v fuse box. Not marked for the awning. Is there a fuse somewhere to check.
I should say this is a fr3 32 ds. Also it is a solera awning

Here is the schematic for my battery control center. Maybe it can help you track down your fuse....

Well guess what! Camping World of Concord,NC screwed up again! After they redid my roof from the recall of FR.(2 MONTHS) My entry lights 12v and on off switch has a dead short. Blows immediately when you try to put a 15 amp fuse in i.e. dead short. Took it back to them. Never fixed it. Wouldn't admit it. Wanted appr $800 to fix. Charged me an appraisal fee of $49 when they said no charges to estimate before in writing. I didn't have them fix it. Got to campground and the awning didn't work now. Looked behind couch at the switch and guess what! The power line was disconnected from the switch! What screw ups. Go to have a problem solved because of them, pay $49, and leave with more problems. Thanks B Clinton for trying. Like all I wish there was a true schematic for all the wiring so I could fix it myself.

Just a comment. Typically GT motorhome awnings and steps are wired directly to the battery with an inline fuse and do not use the battery control center for power. Check your coach batteries for inline fuses directly off a positive post.

I uploaded the FR3 wiring diagrams I got from Forest River to the Forum Library.
