hi my name is***** sounds like it could be a motor issue if it is not moving. IF the unit sat for 6 months try tapping on the awning arms, sometimes they can get stuck and the motor might not be able to push them out. Pretty sure on your awning it will have a motor connector inside the arm and normally what you could do is jump the motor with a 12 volt power source and see if the room runs out, if not bad motor. It might be hard for you to access that connector if the awning is shut. So you could go to the switch and jump power on the motor leads going from the switch to the motor, normally red is positive and black is negative. IF the awing does not move bad motor. IF the motor runs then you have a blown fuse or tripped breaker and I would check all your fuse boxes for a blown fuse... Hope this helps if you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me....
