I searched and could not find any posting for upgrading from a manual awning to an electric one. Have a 2006 25RSS with the manual awning was damaged in an accident, insurance company is paying for full replacement. Decided to upgrade from the Dometic 8500 series to the electric 9100 series. My main concern is there enough clearance above the rear door to install the electric awning with cover shield.

Thanks for the help!!!

Sorry, I don't know about actually upgrading from a manual to an electric. However, I have an electric awning now in our Outback 324CG and it takes up the same footprint as a manual one. The anchor points for the material and the arms are very similar is not the same. If you needed more height, I'm sure it could be mounted up more in order to clear the door. The concern would be how to run electrical and a switch for the awning, I would've loved an electric unit on our old Cougar, looks like you lucked out! Good luck!
