Question Vacume vs Manual Head - Opinions?

We presently have a standard Jabsco manual head...Looking to possibly upgrade to an electric, which will make overnight trips at anchor bit more appealing to consider.
Anyone have any experience with the install?
Should we have a pro do it, since there is wiring involved?

Love to hear some feedback, please!

K.I.S.S.

With the exception of the Lavac system (which is a bit of a different beast anyway), all the "vacuum" head systems I've seen are much more complex than a manual system. 'Nuff said.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
