Is there a fix for my 2020.5 or newer Carefree Awning opening and closing on its own?
I received a notice from Carefree about Technical Service Bulletin 2020-06-17. What should I do?
There is TSB that was posted on TOWB from Carefree that I wanted to make you aware of.
It’s not for everyone, and if you didn’t get a letter then there is no need worry. It is only on the Freedom Freestyle Evolution. Part number of the awning starts with an “IJ” from mfg. date of the awning 3/20 to 6/20. What it is was some units went out without the correct washers on the lead rail connectors. This TSB is to let customer know that their unit didn’t get the bigger washer and screw and it would need to be upgraded. It’s a 10 to 15 minute job that they can do themselves or they can take it to a dealer. We are sending the washers out to the customer or the dealer of their choice.
I have attached the instructions on what needs to be done so you are aware.
Why Is There Beeping Every 30 Seconds From My Carefree Awning?
When they are going bad there is a low battery alarm that sounds every 30 seconds.
Instructions for replacing the batteries can be found in the Owners Manual for your awning.
An owner also has reported that a dealer suggested that before changing the batteries, try removing the fuse to the awning for a few minutes and then restoring the fuse and see if the beeping stops. Sometimes the beeping is because the module has lost its synch with the rest of the system.
