I like it but too many remotes to deal with between the truck , Alpines door and the slides. The truck I need the door I HAVE to have the slides I like an awning not so much.

Kouwell !!!
Was that a DIY job ? even Kou-well-er !

We have that feature on ours and have already learned...
1) remotes don't mean you can't watch it - (that tree WAS closer than I thought )
2) best warn the wife when you are doing that and she is sleeping
3) make sure no one (else) tightens the knobs before you move it
4) it's so convenient you forget about it !!!! Congrats !
