We were always concerned about an unexpected strong wind would come up and destroy our awning. We finally opted for a Carefree of Colorado:awning with "motion detector" not "wind detector". Works great looks good and the arms were installed where the old A & E awning was installed.
I believe you have 2 - options for new awnings: 1) Dometic which took over A & E, and 2) Carefree of Colorado. The C of C awning can also be tilted to cause rain water to drain and yet closes without changing it back. Good awning!
