I have the Carefree of Colorado awning but it DOES NOT have the Auto Retract Sensor.
If you have Auto Retract are you glad you have, or would you want it if bought a new coach without it?
My experience after about 8 months.
1. Where the switches are located it is easy for something to mistakenly flip, I can easily notice the awning light on when it should NOT have been, but due to light inside, you can tell it needs to be turned off.
2. If you do mistakenly flip the extend switch, mine will not fully extend, you have to hold it down for it to really extend.
3. One time a gust of wind came, I freaked out opening door and saw the awning swaying; so I start to retract and as I was pulling it in , it made easier to catch wind like a parachute and I just new it was going to break, so I stopped and re-extended it to where it was fully stretched, after a minute of so; the gust died and I retracted back in with no harm done.
