You are correct. The problem would be if they were engaged at the same time in opposite direction. Unlikely, but possible, and that would let the smoke out of something quickly!

This is true as long as no one ever presses the interior awning switch.
Power from the wall switch would then be routed to the awning motor and the remote receiver outputs which are grounded when not activated.
This would destroy the receiver.

F100turbo was trying to protect the receiver by putting reverse biased diodes in the outputs of the receiver (I think). Both lines would have to be so protected since either line can carry positive voltage (IN or OUT) and the opposite becomes ground.

With a biased diode in the remote output lines, there would be no ground path for the remote to operate the awning motor.

Herk, I'm trying to think of something more complicated, I'm sure I can!

No fuse protection in the module.

I plan on installing mine with plan B.

With a double pole double throw switch in the lines; the switch will select the interior wall switch when flipped one way (thus function as a kill switch) and off the remote only when flipped the other way.

Both sides would be isolated from the awning motor and there would be no worry of a possible short circuit thereby letting all the smoke genies out of the module.

Great job Herk! The method you came up with seems the most practical and very easy to incorporate. If there was any battery issues with your fob, you would still have an option for stowing the awning. Can they be put up manually?

Yea, but if you are like me you threw away the part before you realized it was important. I thought it was a piece of scrap webbing laying in the camper. Here is the manual and how it is used (provided you still have that stupid strap). See page 3
