You picked out a beautiful campsite for the weekend, a nice place to pause and relax. But before you can enjoy it, you have a whole checklist for getting your RV set up at your campsite. Getting your manual retractable awning extended is one of those tedious chores. Wrestling with your heavy canopy as you crank it all the way out, turn by turn, is exhausting and takes forever. It's time to find a better way to do this.


Solera 18V Battery-Powered RV Awning Conversion Kit Switch

With a battery-powered awning, there's no bother and there's no effort: push a button and your awning rolls in and out, just like that. It's perfect for dry camping when you don't want to drain your RV's battery. It gives you all the convenience of a powered awning without losing the independence from electricity that a manual awning gives you. Fully charged, these arms provide 20 to 25 uses before needing to be charged again (charge for 48 hours). If you ever run out of charge and need to get the awning back into place, there's a manual override built into the drive head that you can use to retract or extend your awning with a power drill (not included). No wiring is required, which makes for an easy installation.


Note: The manual override function is not available on 2017 Forest River Cherokee campers.


Best of all, this conversion kit is a great economical option. You don't need to buy new fabric or a new roller to upgrade to a power awning. You just need these new awning arms and endcaps, and you're good to go.


Automatic Rain Dump

One thing that can quickly ruin your camping trip is a broken awning. It's not easy or cheap to replace, and you can't really enjoy your patio without one. A big hazard to a healthy awning is rain: water pools in the fabric, stretching it out and putting strain on the arms with extra weight it wasn't designed to hold. Next thing you know, the fabric rips - the arms snap - the whole awning comes crashing down, slamming against your RV and leaving you with a big and costly problem.


For traditional awnings, it's up to you to run out in the rain and lower one of the arms yourself. If you're away from your RV when it starts to rain, you can only hope your awning isn't damaged when you get back. Solera awning arms are smarter than that. This conversion kit comes equipped with an automatic rain dump function. As soon as rainwater starts to pool in the fabric, one of the arms will automatically drop, giving your awning a pitched angle. The rainwater will then run off to one side, taking the pressure off your awning and your mind.


Manual Pitch Adjustment

Solera 18V Battery-Powered RV Awning Manual Pitch Adjustment

It's hard to get your awning in just the right place to keep you in the shade all day, especially with those awnings that are pretty high off the ground. Sometimes you need just a little slant to your awning to keep the sun out of your eyes. The manual pitch adjustment built into these arms gives you that option. Simply pull on one of the arms at the friction joint to drop that corner. It comes down easily and holds itself there for as long as you need it. When it's time to retract your awning, there's no need to readjust it; the awning will slide back into place.

This was one the easiest conversation kit. That I have done.
I’m so impressed with this kit.




by:

Fantastic product. I am so very pleased. I installed it without an assistant.
I used ratchet straps around each end of the roller, and secured them to the brackets of the slide topper for support. I love that it has a built in battery.
A few sore muscles....lol

    We do have the kit you need to convert your A&E awning to a battery-powered Solera kit. You will not need to wire it to a power source and they even come with a charger, though you will get about 25 uses out of it before needing to re-charge the arms.

  • Choosing The Correct Solera Arm Conversion Kit For Awning Arms That Measure 73" Long
    The 63" and 69" measurements you're referring to, is not the length of the arms, but rather the amount of unobstructed space from the awning rail straight down that is needed. So if you have 69" of unobstructed space, # LC434729 or 63" of unobstructed space, # LC759516 from the awning rail down, then these will work for you. In addition to the needed unobstructed space, you're also going to need a minimum of 2-1/2" of clearance needed between awning rail and top of entry door. The instructions...

    I do have an option for you but it will involve upgrading your entire awning as the only Roller Tubes # LC260560477 are for a Solera Awning. You can upgrade from your manual awing to a power awing without having to run wiring. The Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434729 has a rechargeable battery pack built in that is capable of operating the awning 22-25 times between charges.

  • Upgrading Manual Pull Out Dometic Awning to Powered Awning
    You definitely can! If you wanted to tie the power for the awning into the current 12V system on your RV then you'll need part # LC434723 for Black or part # LC434724 for White. These have 69" arms and are compatible with a Dometic awning. If you'd rather have a power awning that runs off of it's own power (so you don't have to connect wires to your RV) then we also have the 18V battery powered option in Black # LC434729 and White # LC434730. These are basically identical to the set mentioned...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Dometic Manual Pull Awning to Electrical
    You can replace the arms on your Dometic manual pull down awning with electrical arms, which is usually a much more convenient and cost effective option than replacing the entire awning itself. To replace the arms you can use either part # LC434723 for Black or part # LC434724 for White, which are 69" awning arms that will connect to your existing awning setup and are powered through your RV battery. There is also a version of this upgrade that comes with it's own 18v battery, which are...

  • Does Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Have Features of 12V Smart Arm
    The 18 volt awning conversion kits are different than the 12 volt Smart Arm kits, so they don't have the exact same features. The 18 volt has just the wall switch, while the Smart Arm has that as well as a touchpad at the base of the awning arm. The Smart Arm also has available accessories such as a wind sensor that the 18 volt doesn't have, though both do have the auto rain dump feature. For both options, you can choose from either Black or White, and need 69 inches of space straight...

  • Measuring For Correct Arms For 12V Solera Electric RV Awning Conversion & Are There 18V Options
    You won't measure the awning rail itself, you simply measure the amount of space from directly under the awning rail straight down; you don't have to measure your awning at all, just the amount of space you have. If you measure straight down and have 69 inches of space you can use the following 12 volt or 18 volt kits: - 12 Volt: Solera 12V Electric RV Awning Conversion Kit - 69" Arms - Black # LC434723 or White # LC434724 - 18 Volt: Solera 18V Electric RV Awning Conversion Kit - 69"...

    I do have a potential solution for you, however the Solera Rollbar Only for 21' Black Awning, Black Tube # LC260560477 that you mention, is only intended to be used on Solera awnings and will not work for your Dometic 9100 awning. Instead, I recommend upgrading your arms from manual to electric with the Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434729 for black, or # LC434730 for white.
