Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Components RV Awning Parts - Anti-Billowing Bracket Kit - LC78FR

Hey everyone. Ellen here at etrailer.com, and we're looking at the anti-billowing kit for your Solera awning.This helps to prevent that awning from just catching the wind and rolling out that fabric even when you don't have the arm deployed. It's going to basically be a stopper to help prevent that.You'll have the bracket to mount on the wall of your RV and then this little bracket that's going to go on the end of your arm or where the fabric roll is. Basically, this piece just will knock against this and prevent it from rolling out any further. It might do a little quarter turn at most, but it's going to help to prevent your fabric from getting damaged, from it billowing out while you're on the road, which is not ideal for anybody, and keep everything where it should be.It also comes with the hardware to attach, so pretty straightforward install and should keep everything where it needs to be. The brackets are made out of an aluminum material, so they're going to be lightweight but still durable.

There's a little rubber coating on the end of this piece to help prevent it from marring this top piece too bad. Again, this is going to be the bracket that's mounted onto your RV, and this one is going to be mounted on the end. They say that you should put this piece towards the front of your awning, or both of these would go towards the front of your vehicle, and should keep it in place.We'll have three small screws to put in the round bracket. Kind of two on the bottom and then one on the top and then two longer screws to attach the RV side bracket. Those two screws, there.Not a bad idea to put some butyl tape behind this bracket as you're mounting it onto the RV to make sure that there's no water that's going to get into there and cause any issues.If you need butyl tape, you can find that here at etrailer.com, or you might have some leftover from any other kinds of RV project like putting in a vent or a fan or something like that on your roof.

As long as it's still got some tack to it, it should be able to be reused for this. Even if you don't have any, it can be used for a lot of different applications on an RV. Pretty much everything takes butyl tape, so not a bad idea to get it if you don't already have it.Anyway, that's going to pretty much do it for our look at the anti-billowing kit. I hope this video has been helpful in deciding if this is the right piece for you. Again, check us out here at etrailer.com.

We've got all kinds of stuff to help you out on the road with your RV, so check us out.Thanks for watching.

Lippert Anti-Billowing Kit for Solera Slide-Out Awnings - Black - LC78FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (55 Customer Reviews)

This simple device keeps your slide-out awning from billowing and damaging your RV when you're on the road. Installs on the endcap of your Solera slide-topper's roller tube and the side of your motorhome.

by:

The Solera Slide Topper appears to be of good construction. Even considering the damaged shipping tube and gouging observed on one of the idler head spring assemblies due to the container having been damaged in transit and re-tped.




by:

If you've ever driven thru Wyoming's South Pass and had your slide topper turn into a parachute then this is just what you need. Easy to install and as always the right item when ordered thru e-trailer.




by:

Good service as far as timely and letting me know in regards to shipping, but NO instructions with the product.

So, it is not installed yet so I’m UN sure how it fits or how well it works = the score of 3 (it could be higher??)


Comments
I found the instructions from one of our Expert Answers for you and I have attached the link.

This was a perfect replacement for my broken one. Installed easily in a few minutes.




by:

Perfect replacement and very easy to switch out. Customer service is phenomenal!




by:

Perfect replacement




by:

I ordered this at the same time I ordered a slide topper. Though I hadn't had an experience with my topper awning billowing (because I hadn't installed it yet,)I thought it would be a good idea to install it pre-emptively. It was easy to install. At least I won't worry about the fabric billowing while driving at highway speeds in the future.




by:

Easy to install after two previous ones. Will do just fine if following instructions and checking location before final attachment.




by:

Install was easy and looks good. Haven't tried them and hope I don't ever need them but there installed if I do.




by:

Good quality at a good price




by:

This came in the mail while I was attaching the last screws on the topper. This went straight from the mail box to the trailer wall and squeezed it into my really tight installation. Should work fine. That slide topper is now DONE.




by:

Easy install and should function as designed. Installing second one tomorrow with one more ordered along with its topper that hasn't shipped yet.




by:

Very satisfied! Works as it should!




by:

Just what I wanted and a good price, better than buying from Lippert.




by:

Only one package was right one was package completely wrong. IM NOT HAPPY

Great service




by:

Sturdy and well made! Your service and the way you take care of your customers is the reason I will buy from you for all my trailer needs!!




by:

Quick shipping and easy to install.




by:

I have not installed this item yet because it did not come with instructions nor did I find anything on e- trailers other than describing the product, also the package in which it came in was ripped and did not contain any screws




by:

Works just like it’s supposed to. I have a 24’ long slide so I installed an anti-billowing kit at each end.




by:

Just what we needed to replace broken hardware. Hope it is stronger than original.




by:

Item received is as advertised.




by:

Arrived on time as promised! Thanks etr ailer!




by:

Product was as advertised and arrived in a couple of days. Very satisfied.

  • Is The Lippert Anti-Billowing Kit A Compatible Replacement For The Dometic Anti-Billowing Kit
    I spoke with the manufacturer, Lippert, and was told that the Lippert Anti-Billowing Kit for Solera Slide Topper Awnings # LC78FR is only going to be compatible with Solera slide out awnings so if you're awning is Solera branded you'll be fine using this product. If you have a Dometic awning then you'll need to use the Dometic branded Anti-Billow Kit.
