Carefree manual awning conversion to power

I have a new Wildwood DLX 39FDEN with a 21" Carefree manual awning. The sales guy said it could be converted to power fairly easily. I have asked two dealers and they can't seem to find the kit. Has anyone else converted theirs?

I don't think that's the conversion kit I need, I priced a complete new electric awning at that price. What I am looking for is just to electric operator.

Just for the heck of it I went on Carefree's site and didn't see any mention of converting a manual to electric.

I don't see what parts other than the awning itself and roller tube that would be common between the manual and electric.

You'd have to replace the whole awning as there is nothing compatible between the two.

Changing from manual to electric has its down falls as the electric mounts totally different then a manual.
You may have holes from the manual that the electric wont cover.

I would like to find a motor and extension arm wire conversation kit without having to buy an awning and roller tube.
