Awning Question

I am thinking about buying a 2011 Crossroads Zinger 260 BH with a manual awning. Later, when the awning needs replacing, I would like to replace it with an electric model. Can this be done? Is there wires already run? Is there a switch for it somewhere in the control panel? Thanks In Advance!

Not familiar with your model it can be done but the worst part is their will be holes where the old manual arms are now located on the side of the trailer. The electric arms are located higher.

Everyone has their opinion but I prefer the manual to the electric

Better to order without the awning and buy a power one later and have it installed when you can.

BEST, of course, is to order it with the power awning.

It's a 2011. Probably has an awning already installed.

Glossed over that. Sorry.

For sure there is no power awning wiring.
