To start off I would check your battery voltage and make sure the voltage is over 12 volts, many times the awning can be wired direct to the battery. Look in your main fuse panel for a fuse and then look for a DC breaker near the battery below is a picture. As a general rule any breakers are going to be 18" from the battery and can be on the frame rail. To test you would want to see the same voltage on each post to chassis ground. IF one side has voltage and the other does not then look on the short side of the breaker for a tiny tab that you can reset.

IF you do not see any breakers or fuses near the battery then it could be an issue with the awning motor. What I might do is pull the switch out of the wall and check the connections, I have seen some cases where the wires will bend when the switch is installed, pull the switch out and then try running the awning.

Beyond that I would have a shop or mobile tech take a look at this.

Hope this helps. Robert
