Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Replacement Drive Head And Roll Tube For Solera RV Slide Out Awning - LC34FR

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today we're gonna take a brief look at this replacement drive head and roll tube for the Solera RV slide-out awning. This is going to replace the drive head and roll tube for your Solera RV slide-out awning. And this is a Lippert components product, so it is going to be the exact same as your original. You're not going to have to worry about fit issues.

It's going to be of the same quality and just like the original, the same fit as the original. This is made here in the USA and you can see that it's black in color. So it's going to blend in well with the slide-out awning that you already have. Now keep in mind that this is a spring loaded device, so you wanna be careful when you are removing your old one and installing this new one. It is possible that it could be under some pressure.

So you do wanna make sure that you're supporting it so that you don't potentially get injured while you are installing this. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

There was no installation instructions included for the drive head. Nothing was found on etrailer webpage either. Called customer assistance and they directed me to Lippert/Solera. Nothing on their tech page. If and when I get these parts installed, I will revisit the rating.


Comments
I apologize for the inconvenience. I reached out to the manufacturer and they have provided an instruction link for replacing the drive head: https:lci-support-doc.s3.amazonaws.comtechnical-information-sheetsawningsccd_0002116.pdf

The part is an exact fit and arrived in excellent condition. It took less than two days to be delivered. I had enough time in the day to install it. The videos available were also a big help especially with spring tension and direction. An rv service dealer helped me reference the correct part number and information for my application. I am highly satisfied with etrailer.

  • How Many Times to Roll Solera Slide Topper
    According to Solara (Lippert), the correct number of turns to set the proper tension of their slide toppers like what # LC34FR fits is between 12 to 16 turns, so I'd consider 14 to be a pretty good happy medium.
    view full answer...
  • How Many Times Does Solera Slide Topper Need to be Wound
    The slide out rollers need to be wound 7 full times when they are installed. So if you were to remove yours to replace the head with the # LC34FR you'd need to wind the roller 7 full times.
    view full answer...
  • Which Direction to Roll RV Awning When Installing
    When winding an awning you want to wind in the direction that would allow the spring tension to want to pull the awning fabric in. So depending on how you look at the head it could be clockwise or counter-clockwise. So roll the awning like you are rolling it towards the body of the RV since the fabric comes over the top of the roller. 14 rolls is typically gives the best amount of tension.

  • Picking Out Replacement Idler and Drive Head and Tube for Solera Awnings
    We have the replacement drive head and roll tube part # LC34FR and the replacement idler head and roll tube part # LC87FR.

The drive head is what does the actually rolling and the idler basically just free spins.

  • Do You Have To Remove The Solera Slide Topper To Replace The Idler Head On The Roller Tube?
    You do not have to remove the entire slide topper to be able to replace the Idler Head and Roll Tube # LC87FR for your Solera slide topper. A second person will be able to support the weight of the tube and fabric in place while the assembly is replaced. Depending on the height of your toppers and the working platform you have it may be safer to pull the entire assembly since you will have small hardware that needs to be removed and installed. If you are removing the Idler Head # LC87FR...
