Customer Question
Our Electric powered Awning...

Our Electric powered Awning will not come. It starts and then stops like the motor trips a breaker. It will go out but will not roll in. Is there a way to get it in Manually

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes it is a 2017 travel trailer 3rd time we've had it out. I noticed 1st few time we used the awning it slow. Just thot that is the way it is. But think it may be a bad motor

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '17 RV?

27 ft. Sunland

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. and nothing but pushing the in-out button

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Don 't think so

Not sure if this is a Dometic 9100 they are pretty common, if that is the case click HERE and see page 8 it will show you how to run it in manually, if that does not look like your awning I may need to see a picture of yours to determine the manufacturer.

Hope this helps some... Robert
