Greetings irv2 campers, 1fanman here with another question. I have a perfectly good awning on my bounder and my DW has asked me to replace it with one that will extend remotely and will retract in the event of heavy winds, my question to you is, should I replace a perfectly good awning with an automatic one or just wait until the one we have needs replacement? Yes I know, if mama ain't happy no one is happy. Thanks and look fwd to your replies.

Why replace a perfectly good awning when it will wear out sometime. You can put up a manual I a minute.

I believe you can use the same awning and just have the arms replaced. I saw someone do that at the Good Sam Rally in March. They replaced the arms and wired it to 12v power.

What is her purpose for having one extend and retract electrically? or is it she just doesn't like the color? and the bottom line is if the majority says to leave it alone and not change it.......... how do you expect to eat in the near future ?
