Also, doesn't say anywhere that if you manually tilt does it kill the power retract and wind sensor retract. With the momentary wind gusts we experience down in the SW I could see being all setup for a nice happy hour on the patio and suddenly the awning retracts.
Need more info and demos on how the awning works before it can be assessed, there isn't much info out on it on the web.
The angles that I mentioned were from one of the Dometic pages which I linked; you're not going to slope this awning radically. I'm sure it's not a tilt as an alternative to power operation - it's simply an adjustment at the base of the arms.

My power awning has the same auto-retract feature, and it has never auto-retracted. The sensitivity can be adjusted. I doubt that unexpected retraction is a significant issue, especially since one is unlikely to be sitting out under it during a storm that would be potentially damaging to it.

I couldn't find a manual for these awnings on the Canada or U.S. versions of the Dometic web site. Dometic's posting of information online is extremely sporadic - almost random. Perhaps someone might contact Dometic and have a PDF version e-mailed.

Same one that I linked earlier. It is the only awning of this type listed on the Dometic web site.

The Features web page for the 19 Foot has been updated, and does not show the air conditioner.

I agree. It makes absolutely no sense to me to include as standard an expensive item which adds undesirable weight on top of the trailer, adds height (causing clearance issues), is not wanted by a significant number of potential buyers, and is so trivially substituted with a common roof vent.

I'm not. I've had 3 RV's with the new type screen door, 1 Scamp with a bi-fold screen door and the current Escape mesh one.

First of all, we like to keep the interior as bug free as possible. We found the attached type screen door to be a PITA to use in a way that keep bug ingress to a minimum.

The Scamp bi-fold did the job quite well. You never had to let go of it. Pop it open, enter, pop it closed. If the Escape had come with it I'd have been just fine with it.

Love the current Escape screen door. With an added handle we can flip it open, be in or out and flip it closed before any local bugs can get their act together.

To each their own.

Personally I would like to see the furnace become optional. It is not an option I would have chosen.

Dometic seems to sell a "Patty O’Room" screen room that according to campingworld is compatible with the Dometic 9500 series.

This is not an option , however one may eliminate the furnace and receive a credit as well as extra cabinet space . We chose not to have the furnace in favour of installing a built in electric heater . At this point in our camping/rv life this suits us very well . Very quiet , clean and easy .

Good to know. This is what is usually known as a "delete option" in the auto industry.

The A.C. Is still listed as an option on the 19. The option list is still a work in progress. We just have to be a little more patient!
