There is a 2amp fuse connected to one of the wires. Pulling that turns the light off. I'm going to see if there is a wiring diagram for the awning but it's suspicious that this started with the solenoid stopped working properly.
I can explain how the CofC awning is wired by plant 750. Plant 750 does not use CofCs suggested wiring. First is a single wire in the body wiring harness the runs fro the ignition switch through the front cap's fuse and circuit board to the rapid camp circuit and relay board. This is the ignition inhibit. It removes all power to the awning and power to the slides switches but not from the slide's motors. Power is always supplied to the motors to keep the slide locked in position when traveling. Of course the use/store switch or pulling the 30 amp fuse will remove power from the motors.
Back to the awning. Power from the awning fuse goes to the rapid cam board then through the inhibit relay and on directly to the awning 's control module (auto response in CofC vernacular). The awning's control module always has power when there is power to the 12 volt section of the power center.
In the awning's wiring harness there are 7 colored wires: two are awning power and ground, three are awning direction and two are awning light. The wires from the switches does not go to the awning but to the rapid camp control board under the bed next to the battery isolation latching relay. Power to the awning light is controlled by the position of two relays on the rapid camp control board. Both are latching relays since we want the lights on for extended periods of time. The first relay determines whether the second relay is controlled by the rapid camp receiver or the rocker switch for the awning lights. The second relay is power on or power off to the lights.
I hope that helps. As you can see it is complicated at best, but it is logical considering the options desired.
