Hey new member here! I just bought my 2016 ST270BH and I love it. I hav been going Thur the coach to get acclaimated with the unit. Got to the awning to retract it out ,but it would not retract back in for some reason ,I check the fuse and that was good ,so I manually retracted it back in and it rolled up backwards. Thanks for any helpful info. Pat Butler
We have a new 30 RKS and just completed our maiden voyage. I also have an awning issue. The motor seems under powered as it winds up on the rail crooked unless I assist the rear support arm. Without assistance the rear arm stops about 4-5" from the fully secured position. Slowest awning I ever saw. Also there isn't a limit when extending the awning. It should stop when when it is fully extended, not continue to run and then start rewinding awning in from the bottom. As the awning switch is mounted in the middle of the living room a really poor design. This is our 4th trailer.
Try a little bit of lube on the joints and see it that helps. As far as rewinding, I use the reverse rewind to scrub the inside of the awning as it is rolled up. Your switch location is strange, ours is on our control panel next to the door.

thanks for the info. my awning switch is located in the same place . i took some silcone and sprayed the awning brackets , it seems to be working better , but like you said no limit switch is on there and it is very slow but it does work. Pat Butler
