Default Manually operate a power awning? 198BH

I recently purchased a 2019 Conquest 198BH
I'd like to be prepared for anything.
Can anyone tell me how to manually operate the power awning?
Or at the very least tell me the make and model?
I received documentation for everything but the awning.
I went to the Dometic web page but it does not appear to be a Dometic product.
Thank you,

*edit* I've discovered that Gulfstream Conquest trailers come with "Carefree" awnings. Upon perusing their web page I've discovered that the 198bh comes with a "Carefree Longitude" awning
As far as I can tell there is no way to manually operate the awning however a remote power supply can be used @ the motor.

An electric awning will not work without power.

Default Electric awning

Our 2018 Vista 19BFD came with manuals for about everything except the awning too. I called Gulf Stream and a representative emailed us a manual for our electric awning. In the manual it explains how to operate the awning if the electric motor fails. It is easy it operates almost identically like a manual awning. There is a lever on the side that unlocks the awning and locks the awning and the awning is spring loaded just like a manual awning. It has the option of operating like the manual awning on our previous camper.
