Now you need to have Kenny add the remote control to it.

The issue is that the awning could deploy either standing still or while driving.
It's a 2013.

I had one with the recall! It showed no signs of failing, it just stopped working and made clicking sound. Lazydays replaced it.
I only deployed it twice at home. Good thing it didn't happen while camping.

Well, Dometic had Sierra Mobile RV out of Minden NV come up into the Sierra's and replace both awning motors today- great service from Ron at Sierra Mobile RV and great customer service from Dometic and their service rep Colbie- thanks to all!!

Yep, plus Ron gave me some info regarding converting my 'fridge to an adjustable temp unit via an aftermarket circuit board once the unit is out of warranty...nice to have info like that tucked away.
Happy Trails all,
