Accumulating ETFs and Cost Averaging

One drawback of an accumulating ETF seems to me that when the economy is going well, distributions might be higher and then my accumulating ETF uses this more in cash to buy in an expensive market.

When the economy tanks and it would be better to buy stocks, there are also less distributions to buy them with, when that’s actually the time I would want to.

I know that investing in a distributing ETF and then saving the distributions for recessions would be market timing and a bad financial decision so I won’t do that.

Still this rubs me the wrong way. Is there some other perspective on this or something I can do about it? Or does this just suck?
