awning fuse

Does anyone know where the power awning fuse is in a Miranda? Think we need a new motor but the tech said there is no power to the awning and fuse is likely blown.

I'm interested in the answer to this also. We have burned up two awning motors (both replaced on warranty) and wondered why fuse would not blow first. We have concluded that it was caused by the switch sticking when awning was in the closed position.

Typically the fuse for the awning and steps are terminated directly off the battery. Check your battery. Probably a 15A (green sleeve) for the awning. This allows retracting and extending both without external power. I say typically so Miranda may be different.

Are there any fuses coming off the positive side of your batteries?

If you have a multimeter and can gain access to the back of the awning switch on one of the terminals there should be 12 volts DC. Just check all the switch connections to ground for the voltage. If there is voltage on any one of the switch terminals then possibly the motor is bad. There should be a disconnect for the awning within one of the awning struts (behind a plastic guard on one of the arms). If no volts at the switch need to find fuse. Cannot help further with your Mirada. Good luck.
