Undersized wire.......you could try temporarily a length of larger wire (preferably 12 ga or larger) to bypass existing cable. It is my understanding that there are terminals on the motor head that you connect to with alligator clips.
Poorly crimped terminals........check and re-crimp all lead terminals. You may need to strip the insulation to get to fresh un-oxidized copper. Better yet, solder the terminal to the copper wire.
Loose terminals..........check and tighten the terminals at the motor and all switches that control the awning.
Hope this helps.
