This unit is only good for 10amps or less.
Heavier units are available but pricey

Just bought my unit. Woohoo. Hats off to f1100turbo as that is one sweet mod. Gee I hope there are not too many of these at the Rally in Indiana.

Just purchased this kit for myself for the same reason that Herk mentioned. I do not like blindly rolling out my awning as the switch in my Rockwood is located in a spot inside the trailer that I cannot see the outside from very well. Thanks Turbo for this excellent find!!

OK here is the wiring diagram.

I gather that the wall switch becomes redundant when the remote is installed.

HEY all I forgot in all of my hay day of getting this out on the forum I mistakenly forgot to say that you cannot use the manual switch without putting diodes in line from the remote module outputs to the awning wires . SORRY !
Since you have to basically tee into the awning wires you don't want current to go back into the delay when using the manual rocker .
If you do use the manual rocker without them you'll just blow the awning fuse since the delay module outputs are grounded when not in use .
OR you can install a switch on both remote module outputs so that you can use rocker I think that would be a hassle.
I had plans to go to radio shack and pick some up this weekend and thats what reminded me that I may have not said anything .

Sorry for my ignorance of not mentioning this but I AM SURE no one has there module yet !

I just wanted everyone to be clear about the rocker .

Being the electrical dummy that I am, I will probably just disable the rocker switch as I know absolutely nothing about diodes and how to use them, let alone which direction they have to be installed.

had the awning out 6 more times tonight and no issues .
LOL the only issue I may have is a worn out motor by time I get done testing this thing !
the only other thing I changed tonight was to not use there 2 amp fuse but opted for a 7.5
reason being is the motor uses a little over two amp which is ok but when you dead head the awing either deploying or retracting the amperage will blow a 2 amp so I figure .

I would also install a "disable" switch in the battery line.

Driving down the highway and sitting on the fob could be problematic.
