Itís worked all summer without any problems.
Agree, try manually extending it if yours has that option, or using a jumper directly to the motor if it doesnít. Your awning owners manual will have the backup procedure. I have come to believe the motors they use on these things donít have a lot of excess capacity so if youíve not been lubing your pivot points once in a while you might just be stuck.
