Ok I finished my Remote control install for the awning today. It works great with the 1 thing. I have to be no farther than 6 feet from the 5er or it will not work. It might be because I had to mount it behind the control panel inside the door, or the battery, a number 27, could be low in voltage. Any suggestions, how far can you that have put these in control the awning. I mean it will work rfor what I wanted it for but I am just sayin!! I will try to post the video of it later tonight when I get home from work once I figure out how.

And to answer a question that I had from about a month ago, the remote was bad and they sent me a new one, this one works.

Like the poles too! Just don't fold the grab rail over the awning rail like someone did on this forum AND then blame it on the poles. Not to mention any names, but the initials are Daisy Boykin.

Most have mounted it behind the control panel where the factory awning switch is.

Turbs... Just when I think you can't get any dumber, you go and do something like this!


AND TOTALLY REDEEM YOURSELF!!!


I found myself shaking my head at this and I'm not 100% sure why...

It may be due to the fact that I find it stupid... I may find it lazy... I may find it pointless...

Ultimately I am feeling that I am shaking my head because I didn't think of this first and am incredibly jealous I don't currently have this installed on mine!

Nice work Turbs! Yet to be bored with you!

Thank you, however I mean more specific instructions? Anyone have the details on hooking up the wiring? I should've been more detailed in my question too.
