Zipdee power awning opened on I-95, twice

Yesterday the power awning on our 30 feet classic fully extended at 70 miles an hour while driving down I-95. No damage. 20 minutes later it happened again, but I was watching so it did not fully extend the second time. I shut off the house batteries and was able to make it home. Has anyone else had this problem? Will call company and dealer, but we would like to know if this is something others have experienced. Obviously strange for us, but if itís happened to 100 other people that would be good information. Thank you, Pat Morley

Hi Pat,

Wow! That must have jumped the old heart rate right up.

Never had it happen to me but as a thought. Pull the fuse and you can use the rest of the trailer.

Please be sure to post what the dealer says caused it.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.
