For now, mine will remain manual at that cost. Watch the cheaper controls on Amazon...they most likely aren't for the particular model you have and there us a huge difference.

Which motion setting do most of you use? High, medium or low AND does "high" mean high sensitivity to wind?

Yes, they will fit. You can either use the existing bolt or position the bracket lower and drill 2 new holes.

This is the Direct Response kit to add the feature to the Eclipse awning. The one you looked at on Amazon is only for the Travl'r model.

I have this unit on my Carefree awning and it works just fine. I always leave the switch on when the awning is out. Good insurance and you don't have to retract the awning if you leave the site unattended for awhile. CRS causes this from time to time.
