I just had the same problem as above. We were camping over Labor Day. I put the awning up to come home. There had been rain the night before so after we got home, I tried to open the awning to let it dry. There was no noise at all when I pushed the button to open it. It is like it just died. Can't find the fuse in the main panel or anywhere easy to get to. Any help out there?

My dealer said during our demo that the fuse is in the awning area itself somewhere at the top right when looking from the side. Sorry but that is as much detail as I know. I'm sure someone else will come along with more info.

Ate you sure you have the battery disconnect connected (since you drove home and parked it)?

Thanks, that might help. I tried to open the awning a little from the top but it is very tightly held against the top rail. We did reconnect the shore power after we got home. It is working as the outlets work and the lights come on. Any other help will be greatly welcomed.

Electric Awning

Our FRTT SP-220 is back in the shop for related to the electric awning. Shortly after receipt, the awning would not extend, so a new motor was installed. On our last trip (trailer only 3 months old), the awning was retracted but would not extend later that same day.

It is back in the shop to determine the problem, so I don't know yet, but I suspect another bad motor.

I was lucky that the awning was in and not out when it wouldn't work. Couldn't find a fuse so going to be interested in what they find.

Anyone else having similar problems with their awning?

My power awning fuse is in a pigtail located behind the power center.

Remove the screws that hold it in and then slide it out.
You might have run out of DC fuse locations in the front like mine did.

Merged two "awning not working" threads and moved to electrical section as it applies across the board.

Oh gee, thanks.
I am brand new to this forum and I have no idea how to just take off and fly off to a new forum and pick up where I left off. I was just getting an idea of where to look for my problem.

Don't you want folks to find out how to fix these annoying problems?

Do you mean the awning is working now?

No, it is not. I was hoping everyone would keep giving me clues until I solved the problem. Now I have no idea where this thread went. I am just as lost now as I was before.

The thread is in the Forest River Forums > Forest River Tech Talk > General Tech and Repair > Electrical, Charging Systems & Solar
power awning not working

Did you find a fuse? Herk said his was behind the control panel which you would have to remove 4 screws and gently pull the unit out being careful with all the wires and there are a lot of them.
