New, Innovative Direct Response Electronics

Mirage RV Awning

Motion Detection System

The Mirage is the only awning that has a system to detect canopy motion. The new Motion Detection System senses canopy movement, the most important element to prevent wind/weather damage. Anemometers mounted on the top of RVs ONLY detect wind and may cause the awning to retract EVEN if the wind isn’t causing motion in the canopy.
The Mirage automatically retracts when the canopy reaches a certain level of movement – you determine the movement level.
The Motion Sensor Box is located inside the awning box, as indicated by the red arrow.
Peace of mind: the motion sensor box constantly “talks” with the control panel to ensure that the Auto-Retract feature is functional. If for some reason it is not functional the control panel will alert you. This notification occurs regardless of whether the Auto-Retract is turned On or Off.

Easy-to-Use Control Panel

The Control Panel is located on the inside of your RV for easy access. Simply press the “power on” button and then press the “extend” button to deploy your awning. You control wind sensitivity with the easy-to-read control panel. To retract the awning, simply push the “retract” button. Direct Response Electronics are also available on Carefree’s Eclipse awning.
To activate the Motion Detection System, press the “on” button and then choose from five different settings. The auto-retract settings range from high to low sensitivity.
You can easily position your awning from inside your RV by glancing at the green light on the control panel.
