HI my name is Robert....

Really need the manufacturer of the awning as Newmar has used several over the years, on some models the wind sensor sits inside the awning arm instead of the roof. The main causes of the room running in would be the wind sensor running it in, an issue with the control box for the awning or on some they are set up if you turn the ignition switch ON the awning might run in so you do not take off with the awning out. IF you can get me the make and model of the awning I might be able to assist you better. There should be a sticker on the roller tube that is visible when the awning is fully extended....

Let me know if you still need help on this..... Robert
