Are the power awnings on the JayFlight or Eagle series better than the Swift or SLX lines?
I absolutely KNOW that I am not the best one to be giving advice but I just watched some videos on this. If the awning is out and level, it can collect rain and the weight of the water can stretch the fabric and/or collapse the awning, which can cause damage in different ways. With the manual awning, you can tilt one side of the awning down a bit, and this allow the rain to run off, which is safer and also will allow you to keep the awning open during the rain and give you a dry spot for bikes, wood, etc. and allow easier and cleaner access to your TT.
My followup question is whether the newer manual awnings for the x19h allow users to adjust one side downward as you can do with the manual . . .
Maybe someone more knowledgeable will reply to our combined questions.
