Out little pup has a 'manual' awning...as in like...if-you-want-it-set-up-you-gotta-do-it-all-yourself kinda awning. No buttons, no switches, no crank handles.
Blood, sweat, tears, and foul language kinda stuff.

I have the manual awning and am a real expert in taking it down and putting it up, especially in the middle of the night here in Yuma. I also have one of those (Arizona rooms?), but it was a pain in the neck trying to slide it on the track as it is really a two person job and I am here alone and have not used it over a month.

We have a power awning on our brand new 2013 26bh and have only been out 3 times but it seems very user friendly and adjustable so no issues for us. so much easier set up from our 2001 kiwi with a manual. Although to be fair never had an issue with the manual in 4 yrs.

I like the auto awning but wish Jayco would have added a couple of extra wires in the power cable
to ease the installation of the auto-retract kit.

Awning Poll and discussion

All last summer, I was a little disappointed with eh electric awning not being adjustable. Well, thinking around the 5th wheel today, I was looking at the awning and noticed these holes and push button I could not find for some strange reason last summer. Turns out, I can adjust the pitch! There are 6 holes to adjust
made my day!

Had a 197 with a manual awning. Never again! The one and only time I put it out was more than enough to convince me. Last year we traded for a new 197, and it had a power awning. Awesome! Push a button - out it comes. Push another button - back up it goes! I know the gizmo gurus will be poo-pooing the idea of a power awning, but they can poo all they want.

Our new 197 also has a pull-out (or whatever the politically correct term is). Huge, huge difference in the internal layout as well.

Did i say I like our power awning?
