    No Sunroof, but I will have an escape route in the event of power/actuator failure.
    The current plan is to have a means of unhooking the actuators from the bottom mount, unpluging the electrics and manually lifting the roof ... time will tell if that is viable.

    Hmmm.. well that's good news, the 20A Max figure came from the LA30 Spec sheet, I just double-checked and that is what it says. If the power consumption is less in a real-world application then all the better.

    I've not looked at the specs but I would imagine that the max 20 amps would be when the actuators are lifting their max load and the Nova canopy between the two is quite a bit less?
