I have OEM Direct Response on my 2015 Windsport 34f and I will tell you this....it works, however, I left my awning out one trip, and returned to my awning retracted with both arms broken. My coach was only 3 months old! It gave me a false sense of security to know the awning would "automatically" retract if heavy winds/weather would occur. The weather got bad very quickly, so it had no chance to retract in a timely matter. It does not retract it any faster. After consulting with Carefree and my dealer about my case, they fixed it under warranty. Lesson learned, I will NEVER leave it extended while we are away from the coach for a long period of time.
As far as sensitivity, it will begin to automatically retract when it senses @ 8" of constant movement.
