Need an awning replacement

I need an awning replacement , I have a 1998 forest river wildwood 24fb and the awning won't roll down, the switch is busted off. I don't need an exact replacement, just need it to be economical and work well. Any suggestions or links ??

The most common awnings are manufactured by Dometic and "Carefree of Colorado".

The only real down fall to the electric awning is the need to tie it down.
Luckily there's a solution for that.

There is no comparison between the two !!!
There is no way this Pic 0 Crap awning would hold up to half the storms our old manual one did !!! Plus we have very little adjustments on these !!!
I have a pole set on order,,, so that I can leave it down when it is sprinkling !!!

Yes - agree ! We had the brackets mounted on our deck for our old manual awning to detach from camper and use in the carport position - those and the deflappers were the best setup ever - never an issue with weather - only needed to drop one corner slightly if it really rained hard 💦
