I work on lots if awnings and the great majority are power awnings........BUT NO ZIPDEES unless they are their $6000 plus lateral arm models on high end coaches the ones they are offering for Airstreams are a potential nightmare!

They used to make one that looked similar but was air powered and found on Prevost motor homes and you guessed it......a maintenance fiasco.

Stick with the manual ones.

Nothing is perfect but the tongue jacks have proven themselves to be functional and reliable over many years. We'll see how the awnings do in time. But they are not for me. I'll stick with the manual. It just is not that difficult.

stopped by the dealer today with a few more questions (thanks to all of you) and there is no 'manual operation'. So if it dies you're SOL. that's enough for me, and the price, to not do it. thanks everyone for your comments.
