What you really need is an interlock so that you cannot start the engine with the awning extended, and cannot extend the awning with the engine running.

On edit— That was dumb. Instead, it should be a duplicate of the sliding step's controls. You can't extend it when the engine is running. And it automatically retracts when you start the engine.

The awning only has to be extended a few inches to snag an overhanging tree limb, power line, or some other obstruction.

Make errors otherwise the Great Spirit realizes
you have finished your purpose on earth.
