I don't know Oaklevel......we always had the manual too, until we got this XLR, and it has the electric awning.....I LOVE it!! Before, I always had my DH open the awning when I wanted it, and now I push a button and do it all myself....when I please! I wondered how the awning would do in the rain, because we used to always have one side higher than the other, on the manual awning. The electric awning looks to be pretty even when it is deployed. Well we had a good rain, and the awning worked beautifully! It drained off the front left corner (if looking out the screen door) beautifully!! I was worried it would be dumping water where we walk in and out.
