I had a manual on my last trailer and the new one has power. I really want the manual back. Far more configurable for different conditions!

I have a electric awning. If I could afford it I would get rid of it. and put back the Manual one back on
You can tie down the manual one
The electric one you can not leave out over night ( wind)

Have electric but would rather have manual. Why because when it rains I have to bring it in and it usually rains right up to the door and we're bringing in mud because many sites are well worn down to dirt. If I had a manual one I could leave it out, tilt it to drain,leave my outdoor mat out to wipe off my shoes or even leave them outside( out of the rain). You need some dry space as you'll find out, hopefully not the hard way. I can leave my stack of wood next to the TT and a bike or 2 and my small burner stove and it can stay dry, but noo dice I have the electric for now! Bet ya I rip it out before next year.

The power awning on my new White Hawk can be adjusted for angle and made to tilt from one end to the other. Both sides are independently adjustable. It can also be tied down if I want to. The best of both worlds. It's much more adjustable than the one on my 2007 Eagle and much faster. I just went out and timed mine - 13.5 sec out or in. The only thing that I can't do is use deflappers.

Possibly because they've never seen one of the new power awnings?

Well, after I left the manual up in a wind storm and bent it to h***. I removed the wreck from the TT the next day.

Surprisingly heavy, and mounted at the roof line.

Remains are under the house. Bought a freestanding roof with screen/shade removable sides. Easy to place where we want it, tie down or collapse. JMHO.

unlikely they are getting anything special for a power awning on a x19h featherlite. I am quite sure it will be a "sun shade" and need to be retracted during most rain events.
