Our coach is three years old and has A&E automatic, wind sensor, electric main and overdoor awnings. In the three years we have had the unit, we have had the awnings worked on seven times. A&E replaced the motors once, Newmar replaced everything once, and we have had them repaired ourselves five times. They last for a few months and then stop working--the motor quits, a gear breaks, the awnings hang up, or something goes wrong. I'm interested in knowing if others are having problems with this product, or if I just have a lemon. Your comments would be appreciated.

Can't speak to the A & E electric awnings, but have seen a few electric awning failures on Holiday Rambler units. The manufacturer is "Carefree" I believe, must be all the manufacturers are having their problems. When we bought our motor home, I wanted the electric awning unit and was going to replace the manual one with an electric one, but the dealer's service manager talked us out of that thought. We are so glad he took the time to voice his opinion on the electric awnings and their problems. Our manual awnings work just fine, (knock on wood).
