    Reflection Electrical System Issues

    My unit is a 2018 Model Year Reflection 337RLS. Rear awning is stuck in retracted position. I am suspicious the motor is bad, but wondering if any of you have any tips to trouble shoot it. I checked the only fuse I could find, and it is good. This leads to my next question: Where can I find a complete wiring diagram for my rig?

    Your best bet for a wiring diagram is reaching out to GD customer support using your VIN. Even the same model may be wired differently during phases of the production process. Have you checked the awning motor with a meter to make sure it's getting power?

    At the very least before buying a new motor, 1/ take the switch out of the control centre and first check with your meter for 12vdc on one side and then 2/ verify the switch is working.
    It may turn out that a connector came off the back of the switch or something simple like that.

    We had the same issue. Confirmed power was reaching the motor first. I then had DW hit the extend switch at the same time I pulled out on the motor side of the awning. It started to extend at that point. Once fully extended I lubricated all the hinges. Ran the awning in and out a few times. Have not had the issue since. I do lubricate the hinges each year now.

    Just believe there was too much friction for the motor to overcome and extend.
