Best of luck. No luck here either. Dealership claimed they got mine working by jumping a couple wires from the board out the door and to the rear wiring directly. JC told them probably severed wires inside cabin. Bring it to JC 8/2.

We won't be able to get to JC anytime soon. We are in Yellowstone until the third week of September and then head to our next jobs in Yuma, Az.

Well after a year of messing with my power awning I feel I have finally fixed it. I had to replace the control unit again only this time I did it. Zipdee sent me a control unit for free with new wiring (short harness at control unit to airstream wiring). I rewired the harness and tightened the screws on the connection. The new wiring locks into the control unit way better then the old one. So now the awning works great. Maybe I will grow to be glad I spent the money to have it installed. Thanks to everyone at Zipdee for putting up with my displeasure to take the time and get me going

Awning problems as well

I just started having problems with my awning. So, dumb question. Where is the control unit to see what sticker I have? I have a later model 2017 as the Alde system does not have the problems some of the 2017s had that were released in September 2016. Awning goes out about 3 feet and then stops. I bring it in and try to take it out again. It may stop or go all the way, but it's a pain to get it back in again. When the front tilt goes all the way down the motor just runs nonstop and I have to press the button to stop it. Definitely sounds like the motor is not getting enough power.

Hey WSWHiTING, dang. Hate to hear you are having problems with your awning. I had one day that the awning would not deploy but I just brought it in for the night and went to bed as I was too tired to mess with it that day. The next morning it worked fine So I won't be any help to to you but I think PAICEMAN ( Bud ) had a similar problem, maybe ask him about his awning.

On the 17's, I've found when the awning does not go out all the way, goes 3' and stops, it appears the fabric is bunching up and the control arms consider the awning to be deployed. Is all I can figure. I close it, then re-open it and have my wife very gently pull on the rear arm and I pull on the front, gently, which puts me close to the switch. When we do this no issue. But, if nothing else goes bad on the trailer before the warranty is up we are going to go to JC and have all the small stuff taken care of at one time, and have the awning looked at.

Power awning

After the year it took me to get my awning working I will say that it is nice BUT if I had a choice (which you don't now) I would of not gotten it. After finding out what the parts cost on it when it will break again I almost fainted.

beetlebob: Mine works and has not totally failed, however, if it does I am taking it off and going "back" to the manual version we have had on three other Airstreams. Never and issue, easy to use and never have to worry about opening or closing.

Enjoy

Called Zip Dee yesterday and they said I'll need to take it to a dealer. He said it sounded like a motor problem. I might go manual as well.
