The local dealer has just received a 2014 30' International Serenity with that awning option. There are three electric motors involved, one in each lift arm and one on the awning roller. Each arm motor can be operated independently to create slope for water drainage off the awning at one end or the other end.
Failure of any one electric motor when the awning is extended could be a real issue. I did not look at the manual for the awning, but I did not see any easy work around in case of a motor failure.
That is a $3,551 list price option on the 2014 Classic models.
