Awning switch

Been camping for two nights and used my awning both afternoons. Today for some reason my awning switch has reversed itself! If I push retract the awning deploys. And pushing Extend makes the awning retract. This is my 5th year owning this unit and nothing like this has ever happened before.

You rolled it up using the extend side of the switch. Extend it using RETRACT and it will go out and continue rolling to come back in.

Thank you! Your suggestion worked perfectly! Appreciate your help. What an idiot I am!

Not an idiot, just a brain fart and a poorly engineered awning controller that allows that to happen. My FIL bought a brand new TT years ago and had that issue from the dealer - they had rolled it up backwards. I noticed it when he brought it home and saw the material rolled under the roller instead of on top. We thought he had a defective awning until we figured it out.

Glad you're back on track!

It can happen to anybody...
But now that you know that: you won't get caught again!
