Liberty Edition

So I have a couple questions. In the brochure, it shows the L.E. having an automatic tilt awning for rain. My manual for the awning says to manually tilt the awning to allow for rain run off and to close it in heavy rain?? WTH? Also states back splash for kitchen area. Nope, no back splash! Last it says heated and enclosed gate valves. WTH is a gate valve?? Just realized when reading through the brochure again that I am missing these Liberty Edition options. Anyone else notice this?

If your awning has struts, they will compress under heavy rain and provide automatic tilt, provided you do NOT have the knobs tightened down.

Pretty sure gate valves are your black and grey dump valves.

It does have the struts and it did automatically dump as we had heavy rain but I read the manually afterwards. lol

If that's the case about the gate valves, they surely are not enclosed! Not quite sure what that means but they are right there in the open.

I think the valves themselves are in the underbelly. The handles are accessed from outside. That is how they are heated.
