When I first got ours, I rolled it up regularly with the awning for travel. But then I noticed the retraction was getting sluggish, so I remove it when we moved.
I think rolling it up increases pressure that the electric motor needs to overcome because it changes the gear ratio, fabric has to go around a larger diameter roll, which I think is why the awning manufacturers do not recommend it.
