Found it...

The trailer started beeping the other day so I decided to check out what was the culprit.

Since there was no battery in the smoke detector for the winter or the temperature monitors, l looked at the fan and the gas sensor. All good there so I unplugged the trailer which removed all power since the main batteries are in storage and we have no solar. Still beeping every 10 seconds but it sounded like it was outside by the porch light.

A real head scratcher as there is nothing there and no power...I will admit it took me a few minutes to realize that it was the wind sensor within the awning case that has a low battery alert.

I think this topic has come up before but if you have a 2018 trailer with the power awning, expect to replace your awning sensor battery this year.

Since the trailer is still covered in a trap, it will just have to beep away like some motion sensing alarm.

Thank you so much for this heads up! We probably have another year but now we know what to expect. This prompted me to look in the owners manual to see what sort of batteries the power awning remote and Vibration sensor takes....

For the hand held remote: One CR2430 Li-MnO2 battery
For the vibration sensor: Two AAA disposable batteries

Someone (Eggscape?) also posted recently to look for the serial number inside the power awning case....which we did, and found. Hopefully, won't need it... but nice to have in our records. Thanks!

Best, Bea
