I had this happen to me. The awning motor would run for a few seconds SLOW and then overheat and cut out. It would reset and the same thing would happen. I even went and spent money on a new battery and that didn't help.
I had the motor replaced under warranty. The new motor came with the same exact date code on it, but it sounds a LOT meaner like it's actually working.
However, in researching, I found that the drivers side window motor for a 94 Chevy Lumina is the same bolt pattern as the lippert awning motor at a fraction of the cost. You only lose the ability to use the manual retraction. However, it only takes 5 min to replace the entire motor anyways, so if I have to use my spare, I'll just get another one and not worry about the manual retraction.
