3 yrs ago I bought a motor and the spring end for a power awning on ebay for $75 and carry them in the trailer along with the emergency strap.

I have a solution for that: I call it a wiz jug. Sold at Cabela's and probably any other outdoor store. We don't leave on a road trip without them as our boy always tends to pound his Gatorade too fast!

Albeit I don't use it very often for fireside relief, it does work nice in (and along with) a tight pinch.

They went up quite a lot in 3 years. I should not be surprised.

I think I will just make a strap (or order one now from Dometic) if I need to roll it up manually to get it home. I can always get the parts later if I need them.

I will be putting a kill switch in the 12VDC power line just as a safeguard. Hate for someones garage door opener to run my awning out.

Herk, I have been talking about doing this with our 5'er as well. You never know if a little kid will get curious and hit one of those rocker switches. Can you give us a more detail and maybe some pics as to how and where you placed the kill switch(es)? Thanks.

P.S. I think from a safety perspective this should be done at the factory.

I have been thinking on the power to the remote unit and although I am not quite sure yet where anything is going to be mounted, if I can do what I want I will be putting a DPDT center off switch in the cct. With that I will have a center off and then can select either interior or remote awning operation.
