Last weekend we were camping and everything worked fine. Got home, tried to extend awning and it would not extend. Checked 15amp awning fuse in converter to find it blown. I replaced it and it blew the fuse again when I tried to extend. Any ideas on what to check for next.

You have a short or frayed wire. Take a volt meter and start checking.
