Anyone fix the stupid awning retract issue. I have a new motor on order, and will try to replace it to see if that helps.

Got home from LaMesa Sacramento, first time extending the awning on New Tranquility 19L and wouldn’t retract. Still won’t. Motor spins but sounds like stripped gears.No response from LaMesa. Hit the curb and your on your own should be LaMesa’s slogan. So far have had good tech assistance from Thor on another issue. Hope the awning goes the same way.

The awning on most of these RV should not be extended all the way or they will not retract as the awning motor does not have the torque to overcome the extended supports. To retract you need to use the awning tool or "help" the motor a bit by pushing it closed a bit.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately the first time Iíve heard this. One would have thought the top notch crew at LaMesa might have known this. I have an appointment at a Thor authorized service center. If it canít be resolved Iíll probably replace it with a manual crank

The "update" motors are on 6-8 months back order ... I am suppose to have mine last week ... and it still has not arrived.
My awning is still working, but will only retract with manual help

I guess a new awning would probably be out of the question. Iím completely new to this RV experience, but so far I canít imagine tolerating the less than average customer service starting immediately after taking possession of the vehicle with any other manufacturer or retailer. Particularly at this price point. Pretty weak.
