That's a serious consideration I never thought about. Maybe it will be windy, about 800 mph from a nuclear blast, in which case I wouldn't put the awning out anyway. Also, in that situation, you might want to chase your iodine water with some Jack Daniels.

I like your sense of humor, mcfarmall. It's dry, but it's funny.

Apocalypse? No one told me about any darn apocalypse?! I better re-think my travel plans. Anyone looking for a pre-apocalyptic TT, low mileage, like new, has manual awning with forehead dents. Leaving town, must sell! moving to Antarctic for a few decades.

Atomic batteries to power, turbines to speed! Sounds like Batman to me. Used to love that show. Never really appreciated the humor until I was an adult. Come to think of it, I'm still not an adult, I just have an old body like one.

I hit my head on the framing all the time
Our Carefree scissors out and I'm 6'2 and it's above my head. Funny, I used to clock myself all the time with the manual on our Flagstaff. Of course, I always left the arms at 45* angle instead of setting them on the ground.

I've said it on here before. I could have made a good youtube out of me trying to get my stupid manual awning back in the first time. I never took it out again. In fact, our new (2012) 197 had an electric one already installed. Great! My good wife can roll out the awning now. Settled.

There is a manual override (though I don't know how to use it yet, I just know where the strap is).

And besides, during the apocalypse, I won't have my awning out. That would slow me down too much! Most likely I'll have my EZ Up shelter out, that way if I need to bug out in a hurry, I'll just leave the darn thing! ICK, iodine water... I'll filter mine, thanks.
