Don, I fought my Girard awning's intermittent retraction problem for years. I repeatedly tighten loose connections and eventually removed the current limiter as recommended by the Girard tech without success. A few months ago I was working behind the TV, I noticed that just touching the receiver/control box or the plate where it was attached would cause the awing to retract under power, occasionally. I pulled the receiver/control box cover and found that touching some components resulted in the same performance. I pulled the PCB and discovered some corroded or cold soldered joints on the back side. I resoldered all and it has worked reliably ever sense.

By the way you can still purchase the remote controls. We found a distributor on the Internet.
