  • Why Do the Solera RV Slide-Out Awnings Come with Two Piece Brackets
  • The Solera RV Slide-Out Awnings like part # LCV000168112 come with different brackets now, the Solera Slide Topper Access Kit part # LC795354 that you mentioned.

If you prefer the old style bracket, we still have...

  • Solera RV Slide-Out Awning Recommendations and Measurements
  • For determining the proper size Solera Slider you need, to measure the total width of your slide room from the outside including the flange then add a minimum of 5" (2-1/2" each for the left/right side overhang).

  • Can I Get a Slide Out Topper If I Don't Have the Proper Clearance Past the Slide Out Flanges
  • With the lack of clearance your options are more limited but you can still get a slide topper for your slide out. You will just have to realize you may not have full coverage of the slide out. You can down size to a smaller slide out topper that allows you to have the clearance necessary. Just measure the size of your slide out from flange to flange and see how close that puts you to the 7" of clearance. Then you will just go down in slide out size until you have the 7" of clearance needed....

In some instances there isn't enough clearance for this in which case we would recommend ordering a slide topper that was a size down to fit the...
