Replaces the motor of your Solera 12V, 18V, and Smart Arm electric RV awning manufactured before 2015.


The unit worked when I installed it.


We received our shipment as expected! I installed the the new motor in our awning. It was simple to install and the awning is running perfectly and is so quiet!

The customer rep, Stacy A., assisted us with our purchase. There was some confusion on my part about exactly what I needed and what I was ordering but Stacy was so knowledgeable she set me straight. I am so thankful that she did because the part we received was the part we needed! We will definitely be using for any other needs that might come up!

Our awning motor is still working great! It was easy to install and we were excited about getting the awning fixed. Like new again.

This was for a power awning. It is still working a year later. Very easy replacement. Even though your up a ladder the replacement went very smooth. Helpful hint: spread a tarp under the ladder. You have to remove about 6 to 8 screws in the housing and motor mount. I dropped one in the grass. Took me forever to find it. They are black and pretty much disappear

Actually about two years now and awning still working like new.
David W - 06/19/2019


product only lasted a couple of months. Your motor still worked but didn't have enough power to roll the awning in. I had to manually assist to get the awning back in. So I had to buy another one. since yours didn't last, i purchased the replacement from another vendor. unless there's something else wrong that caused your product to fail, i'm disappointed in your product. I guess i'll find out if the replacement also fails in a couple of months. Since I only camp for 6 months out of the year, it will probably be next year before I know whether the replacement is still working or not as I just replaced this motor and there is only a couple of months left in the camping season this year.


This motor was a direct fit and easy to install. I read the question about installing, on his website, and it was extremely easy. Unroll 12 inches, support the arms, take the motor off. Reverse order to install new one.

The delivery was quick and delivered on the date specified in the email. They sent me a tracking number, so I was able to track it from shipping to delivery!

Best price from what I found looking, great follow-up, and great product. I will definitely order from again!



This is exactly the replacement part that I busted on my camper awning. Dealing with etrailer was an easy and non-frustrating experience. The price was reasonable and the service is exceptional. I like calling and talking with people instead of just ordering from the website. Their website is well organized but actually talking to someone made the order a breeze. I highly recommend them for camper parts and other devices.


Quickly delivered, product exactly matched the existing, (brand, model, type, fit and function) low pricing, free delivery, courteous representatives, package tracking, followup after the sale, no issues, well pleased, would recommend

Still working, no issues

F Y I ,,, This has nothing to do with Etrailer !!

crappy motor, lci has issues! New motor unwinds the awning fine but rewinds very slow than stops. someone has to come up with a good after market motor to fix there issues. this is not the first go around with lci awnings ( 2 campers ) a 13 & a 17 ------- 5 motors all together. My new trailer, i demanded i would not take the unit with a lci awning on it.
the only good thing with this motor is you can put a drill on it to roll the awning in and out.
good luck folks,,,, read the reviews on this motor its not only me.
happy camping


I was so happy when I found the etrailer web site ! I had been trying to find the awning motor we needed for over a week, luckily I found The ease of finding the part we needed was excellent and the awning motor was an exact fit. My husband put the motor on and now the awning works great. Thank you etrailer


Great product! Installed with no problem and it worked perfectly. The only problem I had was reinstalling the shroud over/around the motor.


Need a motor for an awning repair and Etrailer came through for us in flying colors.
Did a nice job in making sure we received the product and even provided instructions for the installation. The price was right and the shipping was speedy. We will use this company again.

fast shipping and part was a perfect fit for 2015 solera awning on my camper


Etrailer got me the motor in two days so I can have a working awning on my next trip.


Replacement awning motor Installation was straightforward. It works but the awning retract is very slow. Seems like the motor should have a little more power.


Oh my goodness!! Very impressed with this company! FAST FAST shipping and it was free! Our awning motor went out so we researched and found this company. So glad we did! If we need any other products we will without hesitation order again from e-trailer. Thanks so much~ Highly recommend!!!


This motor worked great. It fit just like the original part. Etrailer is the best and they ship fast. They also have great technical support.


I ordered a replacement motor for the awning on my travel trailer. Exactly what I ordered and very quick delivery. Works perfectly. Took 30 minutes to install. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.


The product was easily identifiable on the website because of the pictures. I was able to locate an exact replacement quickly and easily. The part is exactly as advertised and for a good value compared to other sites. The priority shipping was reasonably priced too. I will be shopping from again!


Install of motor and tools used.


Exact fit. It took longer to take the covers off then to install the motor. Hopefully the motor will last the life of the rv.


Sorry but I didn't get to use it. Upon further inspection of existing motor I was able to repair a loose wire that was causing the issue. Thanks for your prompt shipping and fair price. I will certainly purchase from you again.


The replacement motor that I purchased was "factory fit", in & out in 20 minutes. As usual etrailer comes through for me. Thank you


I ordered electric awning motor for my motor home, it was easy to install and works fine. I was very pleased with the product and will use this company for future needs.


This company was wonderful with regards to customer service. UPS was a bit of a mess but etrailer continued to follow up with me from multiple departments. I would recommend them to anyone!!


Parts work well. Fifth wheel is easy to remove & replace as needed. It did take some work to install but overall I'm happy with the kit.

  • Can a Power Awning be Manually Operated on a 2011 Keystone Alpine
    If you have a Solera awning then there is actually a manual override option. Remove the plug on the side of the awning head (see attached photo) and you can use a power drill to operate the awning. If you have a different awning I would imagine that there is a similar manual override near the head unit.

  • Solera Awning Motor Does Not Fully Close the Awning
    We greatly appreciate your business and your kind words. Thank you! First, I would say before doing anything else take a look at the amperage, not the voltage, that is getting to the motor. It is possible that there is enough voltage but if there is something wrong with the battery the motor may not be getting the current it needs to operate. In that case it could just be a bad battery which you could test at a auto parts store. If it turns out that the battery is not the issue we do...

  • Will the Solera Power Awning Motor # LC266149 Work on a 2015 Forest River Salem Travel Trailer
    I spoke with my contact at Lippert who wasn't able to confirm what replaces the SN that you gave me, however I did tell him that you input a 2015 Forest River Salem Travel Trailer in the vehicle guide and he was able to give me some insight. The Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 that you referenced has a pigtail for the wiring that matches all awning motors that were made before 2015 so it is what you need. In 2015 there was a design change, but that would translate over...

  • Is Install of Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 Easy or Difficult
    The install of the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 would be very doable for the owner of an RV. It's just a few bolts that need to be removed and then a couple wires ran.

  • Installing Lippert Components Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor
    The Solera awnings do not use a spring that applies tension on it so that won't be a concern. What you will want to do when installing the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 is to bring the awning out about 12 inches or so and then secure the arms. Lippert suggests using zip ties on the arms to keep them in place. Once you have the arms secured it's just plug and play to install the new motor.

  • Installing The Replacement Motor On The Solera Power Awning
    The Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 does not have an installation video at this time. However, the installation is not difficult. Before removing the motor, you want to open the awning about 12 inches and support the arms. This will remove the spring tension in the awning roller for an easy removal. You disassemble the protective housing, remove the bolts that hold the motor in place and then disconnect the 2 wires. To install the new motor, you simply reverse the...

  • How to Support Awning Arms When Installing the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149
    Although there isn't a specific way to support the arms of your awning when installing the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 you can definitely get creative. Lippert actually suggests using zip ties to hold the arms in place. I would either go the zip tie route or or just recruite a few extra sets of hands.

  • How to Manually Operate Solera Awning Power Head
    One way to manually roll out a slide out awning is to use a power drill. There's a plug on the side of the awning head that allows a power drill to attach to so that you can power it in and out. I attached a picture that points it out.

  • How To Replace the Motor On a Lippert Power Awning
    According to Lippert, the awning will need to be extended 8-12" in order to gain access to the assembly head cover which can then me removed in order to give access to the motor. In order to extend the awning while the motor is bad you can use the manual override procedure which I have attached for you below. Please note you will need to support the arm while removing the motor in order to prevent them from falling. The correct replacement motor for you should be the Solera Power Awning...

  • Will Replacement Motor for Solera Awning with 75 RPM Work to Replace 100 RPM Motor
    Yes, the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 will still work, it will just operate at a slower pace than your 100 RPM motor.

  • What Would Cause Solera Power Awning to Blow Fuses Half Way Extended
    Sounds like the awning is binding up around half way out which is causing the motor to try and work too hard and blowing the fuse. Take a look at the relative angle of the awning to the top of the RV. An out of level awning will bind up so there might be some adjustments needed. One way to manually roll out a slide out awning is to use a power drill. There's a plug on the side of the awning head that allows a power drill to attach to so that you can power it in and out. I attached a picture...

  • LCI Solera Power Awning Blows Fuses When Powered 1/2 Way Out Troubleshooting
    Normally this happens when the awning is binding up as it's powering out. Check to make sure that it's powering out level from left to right as it's very possible that one side is higher than the other which is causing the awning to not roll up squarely and eventually bind up. This is almost always the issue when an awning motor wants to blow fuses when before it fully powers out.

  • Lippert Solera Awning Blows Fuse When Trying To Extend Arms
    There could be one of two things that is not allowing your awning to extend. The first of which as you mentioned is a wire short so be sure to open up the head and pull the switch to look for loose or broken wires. If none are found then there could also be an issue with the actual arm so be sure to manually extend and retract the awning that way you can check to see if the arms are bent. If all else fails you will need to take the trailer into a dealer for service. The good news is that...

  • Do Solera Powered Awnings Use One Or Two Motors?

    We had a customer send us a picture of all of the tools needed to install the Solera replacement motor # LC266149 which I attached a picture of for you to check out. As far as screwdrivers go you'd need to use a Philips head screw driver and a slot screwdriver.

  • Measuring for Solera Awning Installation
    The Solera awnings like the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning - 16' Wide - Programmable - White Fade # LC405492 will be 16 foot center arm to center arm. This awning has the actual canopy of 15 foot 1 inch wide and then you have some roller rail on each side then the arm assembly as well. I've attached the diagram from the installation instructions that show the actual width to the center of each arm being what they state is the 16 feet, but I would definitely measure for precision...

  • LCI Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor
    It does sound as if your motor like Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor part # LC266149 is drawing too much power during operation causing the fuse to blow when using it. The motor itself offers a very easy installation process done with simple hand tools and already has the Solera plugs installed so you simply plug it right in. This can save you some of the expense at the dealer by doing it yourself. One other cause could be a short in one of the wires running up the arm of you awning...

  • How Many Times Should Solera Awning Be Wound
    With Solera awnings you will need to have the awning roller wound a total of fourteen times for proper spring tension. It could be yours was over-wound or maybe the motor is getting weak or your battery isn't in the best shape.

  • Amperage Draw of The Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149
    The amperage that the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 draws will vary based on the awning length and if it is rolling in our out. The motor will pull no more than 15 amps at any given time. When the motor is being wound in it will pull between 10 and 12 amps depending on the length and arms the awing is connected to. When going out the amperage is quite lower as the awing arm strut is helping to push the awning open.

  • Availability of Left Side Motor for Solera Power RV Awning
    Solera Power RV Awnings only use a motor on one side. The Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 is designed for the right side of the awning with the drive head, there is no left side motor.
