Maybe pull the switch out and disconnect it. The switch could be defective.

If you disconnect the strip in the awning and it still won't go out, you have a serious issue... [emoticon]

The wire that goes out through the awning arm has switched 12 volts from inside your camper and there is no "control panel" inside the roller tube, just a splice or connector at the strip. I just got a new strip for our awning (1/2 the LEDS are burned out) and according to a Carefree of Colorado video uses a plug-in connector.


Wrong! The OPs trailer has Solera smart arm awnings, they DO have a control panel built into the arm. Just because your camper doesn't have a feature don't assume that nobody else's do.
Thanks, I haven't seen those before.


Not my rv or dealer, but here is the "smart arm" I have on my rv: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQKaXyaMdvo

Just leave them on all night - then you can read about yourself on the forum in the morning. [emoticon]


Experience without good judgment is worthless; good judgment without experience is still good judgment!

Just to follow up to this, there is a recall on these smart arm controllers by Lippert due to corrosion from water intrusion. The official recall states the awning can start to unroll itself while towing....which could be a pretty big deal if that happened! I called my dealer and they are aware of the recall but do not have the parts yet to replace it but are expecting them soon. I have appointment scheduled to replace these. ( I have it on both awnings)

https://www.lci1.com/assets/content/support/recall/KZ_Dealer_Notice_Smart_Arm_Controller_.pdf

Potential Number of Units Affected: 7,401
Problem Description:
KZRV, L.P. (KZRV) is recalling certain 2018-2019 KZRV Durango, Spree, Spree Escape, Connect, Sportsmen, Sidewinder, and
Venom recreational trailers. The Solera Smart Arm awning may deploy while moving.
Consequence:
If the awning deploys while moving, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy:
The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin on June 15, 2018. Owners may contact KZRV
customer service at 1-800-768-4016, extension 154 or 153. KZRV's number for this recall is KZ-2018-04.
