I've been thinking about building a small ROR to replace my rollaway shed, and I would like to include an automated roof. I'm curious why people who use gate openers to do this, always seem to install the motor inside the obsy. These things are made to live outside. Because I want to make this as small as possible, I don't want to have to get in the obsy with the roof closed. Fine, unless the motor isn't working for some reason. If I mount the motor on the outside I can get to it much more easily, to use the manual override. Is there really any good reason not to?
PS - I have a warm room in a large shed nearby, with power and data lines buried to the pier.
