IF you can access the motor wires then you can try and jump power with a charged 12 volt battery you would need to small wires to go to the battery to the motor, if that is not possible and that is your awning in the pdf file I sent it will show you how to get the awning in manually. Many use Dometic but it is possible you have another awning manufacturer....

Let me know... Robert
