My motorized retractable Nu Image G150 awning has been installed for about a month. As other reviews have stated, on this and other websites, don’t rely on the installation instructions. The powder-coated aluminum is lightweight, very thin and I’m hoping it can withstand the occasional wind gust or a sustained wind. Some of the testimonials don’t sound good. The motor extends the awning quietly but is much louder when retracting and under load. Hopefully, that’s normal. The fabric seems to have stretched some in the middle, it sags. Not sure if adjusting the arm/elbow will tighten it, or if there’s another way, or it’s the way it is. I’ll check some videos and see if there are any suggestions. If not, I’ll call Nu Image. It is nice to sit outdoors in the shade on a sunny, hot day, though!
