OK, took a while, but:

My awning is 3 years old and grinds a bit more than it did new.

Rolling down - 2.0 amps
Rolling up - 2.1 amps

Remember I just read my battery monitor's amp meter while running the awning in and out.
Had I known you were betting the farm on my data, I would have been more precise!

F11Turbo,
What was the mod you were working on. My power awning relay board is bad, and I was thinking of replacing it with a couple of 12V relays, more of an industrial grade solution, instead of the rinkydink pc board that was originally installed.

Were you working on something along those lines?
