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.

I am pleased to report that, after numerous telephone calls and e-mails back and forth between me and A&E awnings, they have agreed to replace my wonderful automatic electric awning by refunding to me what I actually paid for the awning toward the purchase of a new A&E awning. They offered to replace the awning with a new automatic electric awning, but I said "no way." Instead, I selected a manual awning which was installed today by Camping World. While at Camping World, they noticed that my slide out topper awnings, also by A&E, were coming apart (after only 48 months), and I had to replace those too (out of my pocket). One of the technicians at Camping World told me that they are having to replace dozens of A&E awnings because of quality and durability problems. Will the Japanese please step forward and start making American RVs and parts?
