Bound to happen
and I knew it would.
While I was the "hit" of the campground with my "Lazy man's Awning" remote control, what I had feared came to pass.
No issues driving to the campground; on the way back home I forgot to switch the remote control back to "Normal" (NOT in the pre-departure checklist yet).
I must have had an inadvertent key press on the FOB in my pocket, because the awning was about 8 inches deployed when I got home.
It shocked the daylights out of me. Since it was on the curb side of the camper and only 8 inches deployed, no help from passing trucks or motorists who would not have seen it.
Good news was the motor prevented the awning from unrolling in that 65 MPH wind. It was as taught as it is normally. Lesson learned the hard way and has applicability to the "tie it down crowd" threads. If it had just had the spring tensioner it surely would have unrolled the entire awning.
