I agree, the wind sensor was the biggest hemorrhoid I have had with our coach. It is not dependable. You can test the wind sensor with a shop vacuum set to the "blow" output, to see if the awning will even close with that amount of air flow.
The remote takes a special battery, Radio Shack has it. We have the remote, which I have "stuck" to the plastic side panel next to the copilot chair.
Finally, Dometic's site has information on the awning. I have found Dometic very customer service oriented and would not hesitate to call them for a manual.
Last, use a dry lube on the moving parts to increase the ease of opening or closing the awning. The tiny electric motor will thank you.
