RV Awning Manufacturer - LoveToKnow
Once you buy your RV awning, the next thing you have to think about is how you are going to install it. While it is possible to attach it yourself, it can be ...
I believe the wind sensor is a rotating cuff that has a wire which needs to input into the main reader or the wifi unit.if it's the wifi unit you need to check the receiver is picking up the signal.if it's the main readout then check the connection.if it is wireless, you may find a switch on the transmitter to change channel.this may fix the problem, especially if the receiver is near other wireless or bluetooth equipment.
There is a reset button on each sensor unit and there is a reset on the base display. The NA means that the signal is not being sensed from the remote. If you use the reset button on the base you will lose all the historical data. The problem may be related to strong interference from something else nearby, You can bring the sensor inside to see if the base picks it up. IF it does not it may need to be replaced. I have dealt with Oregon Scientific before and they are very good with their support. http://www.oregonscientificstore.com/WMR86A-Oregon-Scientific-Backyard-Pro-Wireless-Weather-Station.product
When you press the operation switch do you hear the motor clicking or trying to operate? If not you need to determine if you have power going to and through the operation switch. These motors usually have an inline circuit breaker that will need to be located. Some of the circuit breakers automatically reset themselves and some have a small button on the side that will pop out when tripped. Once you determine that you have power to the motor and it still does not work then you more than like have a bad motor and will need to manually override the motor to bring the awning in. The awning should have a manual crank that will allow you to connect to the center eye of the operating gear and manually close the awning. I have attached the installation and operating instructions for your awning. http://220.127.116.11/pdf/3307901.011.pdf
Hello. It sounds like you've got a short or a bad ground somewhere in the circuit that runs your awning. Could be a loose wire, a bare wire or damaged wire touching a ground or another damaged wire. Could also be in the motor (little DC motor somewhere I'm assuming) it may have seized or the windings gone bad and instead of working at taking up the electrical load, the load just shoots across it, which is dangerous hence the fuse blowing. Tracking down where a short could be is really a pain which is why it will be an expensive fix if you bring it somewhere. If you have the patience and some kind of multimeter, digital or analog, (you can pick one up cheap at any hardware store) you don't need the really fancy ones. A $5-$10 analog meter with a battery is sufficient. Then you've got to start from where the fuse is and work your way back towards where the power is coming from checking for faults (open) areas. Do this by putting the meter to the Ohms setting. Touch the leads together and the meter should shoot across to the other side. That's a short that you created by touching the leads together. Poking around you will want to look for the same result somewhere in the circuit starting at the fuse ending at the motor that drives the awning. It'll take some time but if you like to tinker you'll learn a little more about your jayco and electrical troubleshooting to boot! If none of that makes any sense or you have the money (or maybe even a warranty) bring it to an RV joint that sells Jaycos.
I'm not sure why you are asking this question; assuming you have aready looked for a manual winding feature. Some models have a cover plate that must be removed to access the manual wind device, however you will need a winding crank/handle that fits into the wind device. As far as the auto mechanism not working, 1st check to see if the electic is still coming to the unit ( was there any disruption to the electric line or wall work that would make the line be disconnected or the circuit breaker ? If you still have problems, l please return with a more detailed list of what you tried and what is/is not happening..
Good luck, Macgivor
