This is one wise reply. The value of the power awing is easy to put out and take in. Just don't hang a lot of tacky lights all over it that prevent rolling in.
My new Rockwood has it figured out. Power awning with a strip of LED lights on the coach, not the awning... This is in addition to an amber and a clear porch light too. Best setup I have seen. I can tilt the awning in a rain to dump the load, but it will auto-dump.
