Anyone with a 2020 BayStar or BayStar Sport, have a solution for the awning clicking when the engine is started? Two of us left Napannee with the same issue from FPU. Newmar did not have a fix, at that time.

Hello, I have a 2020 baystar 3401 with a similar issue. With the key off, awning works fine, no extra noise or clicking. Once the key is turned on or coach started, (even if the awning is already retracted) the awning clicks for about 2 minutes then stops. You can actually see the motor cycle forward and reverse about an eighth of an inch back and forth thus the noise. The awing works fine both via the switch and the remote and the safety feature works as designed as well. I even called Dometic (9200 model) and their tech support had no idea as to the issue. I can try to upload a short video if needed. The clicking should not be there and we hope to have it in for service sometime this fall. AbdRahim, were you able to resolve this or find an answer? Anyone ?

Thanks in advance

How long does yours do the clicking and can you see the motor trying to cycle one way then the other near the front?

I don't think it stops. I have not looked at the awning when this happens. When not using the awning, I pull the fuse.

Well Called Dometic again today, total waste of time. My vibration sensor (wind sensor) is mounted to the hardware arm and I can't remove it. It will slide about an eighth of an inch and hits the motor shaft. So I can't remove it from the base and check the battery. I tried to set off the sensor with some heavy quick movements of the awning arm but nothing happened. So, either the battery is dead or something else is wrong. Dometic was adamant there was no battery inside and it had wires going to it. Mine has no wires and in the instructions shows how to replace the battery......

In earlier post I said it was a 9200 model but its actually a 9100!

Go Figure....
