Yes, I made a test switch so I could run my awning on our 2003 Journey.
You need a double throw double pole center off switch.
On the awning control box connector:
Pin 1 FFD is Power
Pin 2 FFE is Ground
Pin 8 FFL is Motor -
Pin 13 FFH is Motor +
Wire the switch with the motor wires on the common terminals and power on the outside terminals with power and ground reversed on each side.

bonfield, Follower the link below to the drawings for you coach.
The awning switch and controller connector are at Page 7, 137067 Sh 2, D - 21 & 22

Wire ID guide will also come in handy.

All the manuals online are available from this page:
http://www.winnebagoind.com/resources/manuals/

Once you select "Wiring Diagrams" The link to the "Wiring Identification Guide" will appear on the page below the model years.

"Wiring Identification Guide" http://www.winnebagoind.com/diagram/electrical_guide.pdf

It identifies the wires by the code stamped on them at the factory. In your case the 3 letter code stamped on the wires are:

FFD / 12 YEL OVERCURRENT PROTECTION (30A BREAKER TYPICAL)

FFP / 16 YEL PATIO AWNING SWITCH (COMMON)

The guide is several pages long and includes the codes for all wires on all models since Winnebago has been using this process.

bonfield, I assume the pink and black wires are the wires you see coming out of the awning motor which is the pigtail that comes with the motor and connects to the Winnebago wires. As Hikerdogs noted all of the Winnebago wires are yellow or white for the most part with a wire number marked on them and that is where you will find the FFD, FFP, etc. along with a number witch is the drawing number that goes with the wire.
