DIY Install of new power awning

We have a 2000 Journey and the awning got ripped off during our last trip by a wind gust while we were driving down the road. as we were investigating replacing the awning we decided to look at a new power awning and are going to go with the Dometic 9100 power awning and would like any help in installation that you may have to offer. We are very handy and have done several things to our RV and I am sure we will be able to do this install without a lot of problems, but I am by no means an RV mechanic (I sure you could not have guessed that by my need to ask for help on this). Any suggestions on what we will need or what to watch out for would be appreciated. One of my biggest concerns is the ignition lockout on it, so if you have any thoughts on that I would love to hear them. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I can't help with the install, but I encourage you to pick an awning with a wind sensor. We have lived with a Gerard for a couple of years. The sensor has saved ours several times when heavy gusts came up unexpectedly. Dometic says the Weather Pro has a wind sensor; I didn't see one available for the 9100.
