Yup, I agree with you. When we purchased our camper in March, 08 I thought the electric awning would be the bomb, but after a couple of trips out (of course it had to rain) I seen that this awning was going to be a PITA. It worried me to death that I was going to have a collapsed awning, because it never drained like they said "It would". Well after a couple of month's I called Dometic, and the lady told me that they were aware of the design flaw and they were working on a fix at that time, and it wouldn't cost anything. Thus the Retro fit Kit was born. I believe this kit will make the awning much like the manual type, and not have to worry so much about rain any more. We'll See......
