We didnít go camping last year due to some family issues and the pandemic. Our A214HW sat in storage for two years. I was very happy that other than a lot of dust there wasnít any winter or mouse damage. But the actuator failed and after researching the topic on this forum I have decided not to replace it.
I am fortunate that once the actuator was disconnected, my wife and I can easily lift the roof into place. Now I have plenty of time to install gas lifts.
