Herk, it's easier to leave the key fob in the trailer and just use it when you go outside. LOL

I put a kill switch on the landing gear rocker switch as well. Keeps curious fingers from running the landing gear (and bending my rear stabilizers) and also adds a small level of theft protection. Hard to hook up to the camper if you can't raise or lower the gear.

I will be putting a kill switch in the 12VDC power line just as a safeguard. Hate for someones garage door opener to run my awning out.

And spend more time turning on all the switches to enable the switches to power rear jacks, front jacks, awning, lights, etc.

Sometimes I chuckle or talk to myself when reading the forums, and my wife will ask, "who said what"?
Great information f1100turbo, we do not have a powered awning, but I see there are a number of switch configurations that could be used to control just about anything in an rv. Maybe shut off the water pump from the campfire when the kids are using to much water or the lights.

Not sure your diode idea would have worked anyway. From the remote wiring diagram I got that the current path toggles back through the remote controller to ground. Any diode installed to prevent feedback into the remote relay would prevent the remote from controlling the awning motor.

I think a double pole double throw switch so that you can use either the remote OR the wall switch would be the easiest way around all this pickle...

Is the remote module not in the NO position as is the manual rocker switch? If so, it shouldn't make any difference.
