I dropped it off at the dealer yesterday. I secured the awning before I traveled. Dealer checked it out today and said that there was a problem with the motor and they were going to replace it.
Thanks for the advice

10x,

Glad to hear that they are taking care of you. Mine goes into the dealer on 5/15.

They called me today and it is all fixed. 4 weeks ago the 15k Dometic ac unit needed a new board and fan assembly, this week the Dometic power awning motor. I have had the unit home a total of 4 days since I took delivery last month. The 4 days were weekend days, I picked it up on a Sat. and returned it on a Mon.
Both times were Dometic component failure, not FR. Hopefully this is the last time.

Picked up my trailer yesterday, all is working. Talked to service tech and he told me they have had a run of bad motors on the Dometic power awnings on new units. Hopefully this is it for awhile, tired of towing it back and forth.

Not for sure, but I don't think Dometic Awning motors are made in China.
