I just have the one piece sun screen and I agree...I would never use it without support.

I did the retract/extend thing all last year and it just about made me never even deploy it. Every breeze made me so anxious the way it would shake around...it wasn't worth it. If I ever have a choice in the future I will stick with manual awnings but these poles are pretty fantastic.

No. Earthquakes don't seem to bother the awning and if it gets windy, I push the button.

X2 I never leave unattended and roll it in at night or if I am away from the camper during the day.

I never thought about what that motor costs so next time we are camping close to each other I'll have to check out those supports.

How do you adjust for terrain and water run off?
