Power Awning

I have a 2017 Thor Freedom Elite 23H. So, after a few trips, no big problems. But I do have a fairly small issue. My power awning works sporadically - sometimes it deploys and sometimes it doesn't. I'm concerned I might get it extended and then find I can't retract it. I know it has a manual retraction fitting but it is a power device and should operate correct. I can't find any wiring diagrams that are of any use. Fuse box diagram indicates the bottom 15 amp fuse is the one for the awning - I know, if the fuse were the problem awning wouldn't work at all but what the heck...

Any advice from out there?

If you contact the manufacturer: they should be able to help.
Good luck!

If you remove the switch from the wall, you may well find an inline fuse tucked into the wall cavity. (It's a Thor thing...nobody knows why.) Also, check to make sure the wiring on the back of the switch is firmly attached.

Look at the wiring where it comes out of the coach and runs out the arm to the motor head. Might have been pinched or nicked by moving sharps.
