Electric Awning

My '17 Thor Freedom Elite has an electric awning. It works fine extending and retracting on house battery alone. But if I have the Ford engine running and try to extend the awning nothing happens. I can't find anything in the manuals to cover the situation - any hints?


Any info appreciated.


Jim

It's a safety feature designed to keep the awning from being opened while the vehicle is cruising down the Interstate when somebody accidentally hits the wrong switch.

Thanks!!

Dang - a sensible reason. I thought it might be some cross-connection that shouldn't be.
Thanks again.
