Installing Lippert Components Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor


Changing the motor seems simple at a glance but I am concerned about the tension in the roller and does removal of the motor disconnect the roller from the support arm? I see you say a couple of screws but what about the gears the motor drives to move the roller?


Expert Reply:

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.
