Dead awning

Greetings One, and all, I have a 2013 Dutchman voltage 3200 toy hauler. The rear awning switch, which is just inside the rear door on the overhead storage cabinets right side is dead will not activate awning. Cannot find a circuit breaker anywhere in the normal circuit breaker panel. All GFI‘s are good. Any ideas?

The Voltage may have a House Fuse Panel. One of the fuses on that panel may be blown. Circuit breakers are for 120 volt circuits, not 12 volt used for awning motors. Replace or test fuse. Some do not show visually they are blown.

Loose or corroded connections any where in the circuit can cause the issue.

Outside connections to the motor may be loose or corroded. Connections to switch may be loose or corroded connection to fuse panel may be loose or corroded. Don't forget to test both positive and negative connections.

Defective switch may cause the issue.

There will be three wires on the switch. One hot and one for each direction of the awning. You can short the center wire or test to see if you have 12 volts there. If not, look in the FUSE panel like persistent mentioned.
