I have had some awning mishaps already (another long and sort of funny but expensive story) and would be very hesitant to risk something getting rolled up and tangled in the awning.
the instructions with the Vista Pro awing state to turn off the auto retract feature when you have the full shade attached. The three foot section that stays on the awing rolls up just fine on my awing and that alone has helped block a lot of the sun from coming in making the awing more useable. Works for me anyway and retracts just fine. I purchased the 19 foot long, by 9 foot drop.
