I never used my awnings on previous trailers that were manual because they were such a pain to use, especially if I were alone. I had an electric awning installed on my current trailer a year ago and absolutely love it. I would never go back to a manual awning again.

The only drawback I can see is cost. The benefit to me is that it adds so much useable dry space.

We have a power awning and it has been nothing but trouble.  I hate it.  It has been back to the dealer multiple times over three years where they have replaced the gas rods and the motor and then it works a time or two before quitting again.  The only way to roll it up when it stops working is to stand on a ladder and run it in with a hand crank or a drill which honestly takes forever.  I would much rather have the old manual one back as inconvenient as it was to use.   I don't use it when my husband isn't with me as I'm not tall enough to reach the manual access even on a six foot ladder and I can't always find someone to help.
