Ok, good deal, I knew I was on the right trac. Youroo, do u have any idea as to how many times it may need to be wound up for it to work properly? I believe that the spring action there helps the motor retract the awning as the hydrolic rod is helping for the awning push outward. Does that sound about right and if so, how do I get this back to specs. without taking it in and spending a ton of money?

Youroo is correct for a change, must have caught him before 12:00 PM, but if I remember right Dometic told me 11 turns. They all have springs on the opposite end of the motor. That is why you have to pin it before you take or replace your motor. Your motor winds it when you let it out and then the sping tension helps the motor bring it back in. That's why you have to pin it when you take that motor off and it's extended. There is a lot of tension on that spring so be careful when you mess with it...

Here's the wording from page 17 of the doc. If you are like me and use the mobile app most of the time, the docs aren't available. Or at least I don't know how to see them in the app.

Thanks for the education in this thread! My motor has been replaced twice, once by Lazy Days and once by myself. I didn't pin anything or have any tension release. But then I didn't take apart the left side either. So now I'm wondering if my awning is screwed up? One more thing to check out when the weather gets cooler But at least now I have more information.


1.
Place correct (torsion crank assembly) adapter over LH top casting. Then place and tighten hex head screw through adapter and into top casting. See (FIG. 15).
See subsection, “A. Required Kits” on page (4) for torsion crank assembly.
2.
 IMPACT OR PINCH HAZARD. Use extreme care when [winding / unwinding] top casting. If NOT controlled, rapid casting spin off will occur. Spring tension will attempt to spin the top casting and/or fabric roller tube quickly and unexpectedly. Failure to obey this warning could result in death or serious injury.
Note the position of LH top casting for winding start position. Then carefully and slowly turn top casting 9 turns (revolutions) clockwise to apply torsion spring tension. See (FIG. 37).
If awning is installed on RV and extended 2 revolutions (turns) from awning rail, ADD 2 turns for a total of 11

Your spring may not be wound, then the motor would have to do all the work, which will burn those pieces of garbage out... I would check being you went through 2 motors already.. PS: my wife thinks I have dementia. But I guess I remembered that, maybe i'm just ignoring her..

Yep... That's what I'm thinking! It never acted the same after Lazy Days Tuscon worked on it the first time. Maybe this is why! Easy enough to check... I just have to get over the lazies
