Have you tried changing the bulb? If you have, did you look at the wiring to the socket? Those lights see more heat than most realize and also subjected to quite a bit of moisture when it rains. I've found mine with the wires severely corroded and/or burned through.

How do I put out the awning of a Alpinelite 5th wheel rv

Loosen holding screws and unclip both arms
Flick the up/down lever then pull on black cord as you walk back away from RV
Slide both side arms up main arms, lock in place and then tension the awning and tighten lock screws
Release lock clips on main arms and slide them up [ halfway each side is probably best for your awning]
Support legs can be left attached to RV [safest] or can be separated and stand upright, using tent pegs into ground to secure or awning tie downs

Awning wont operate

If it's electric, you should verify you have power first. If not, check the support arms. Loosen the adjustment bolts a little and check for rust or bent areas on the support arms. If the arms look fine, then it could be a problem with the spring inside the awning. I'd suggest taking it to a shop for that.

    Our awning has worked with no problem then all of a sudden it stopped working. The awning is in but when we try to extend it nothing happens. We have checked the fuses. Any suggestions?

    Contact your awning's manufacture for corrective procedures. If not repairable it may be covered under warranty or home owner's insurance.

    Instructions for operating rv awning

    Manual or electric. If electric press the switch located inside the unit. If manual, you will need to go to each arm and press the release clips to unlock the arms (usually black but may be a lift up lock). Next tank the long rod with a loop on one end and a 90 deg hook on the other. Toward the front of the coach at the top of the awning you will see a small lever on the awning. Use the loop end of the rod to pull the lever down. Take the other end of the rod and insert it into the black strap that should be barely hanging down and pull down as you back away. This should pull the awning out. Once pulled out all the way, go to each end of the awning. Close to the wall of the RV there should be an arm hanging down with a knob on the back of it. Grab the bottom of the arm and slide it out and clip it into the end of the extended awning arm. Push down on the lower arm to tighten the fabric and then tighten the knob. Once both ends have been tightened then on the lower arm there will be a pull out handle in the middle, pull it out to release the lock pin and lift the outer portion of the lower arm up to raise the awning to the desired height. Repeat for the other end. If it is raining or windy put the awning away. DO NOT LEAVE IT OUT! The wind will catch it like a kite and rip it off of your trailer. Rain will fill it up like a swimming pool and collapse the center tube and trap you inside of the RV.

    Awning toppers sagging and filling with water

    Hi Ced,

    I would syphon out the water and tighten the awning. If the fabric has stretched too much from the sagging, you may need to add a stabilizer or replace it.

    I found a great eHow article that will walk you through the steps for both scenarios:

    Best of Luck!
