How To Replace Bent Shaft On Solera Power Awning Head


I hit a tree when moving my rv over the weekend. It hit the roof a bit but the awning took most of the damage. I was able to get the arms back in alignment but the shaft that comes out of the end of the awning and goes into the power head was bent. It works but has a pretty bad wobble. is there a way to remove that shaft and either bend it back or replace? Everything I can find shows replacing the motor but not the gears and end shaft. Any help would be appreciated,


Helpful Expert Reply:

If you are referring to the head pin then yes we do have this available as the Replacement Head Pin for Solera Power Awning Gear Drive Head part # LC266141. That said, you would also want two Replacement Retaining Clips part # LC266137 and one Replacement Bushing part # LC281828 when changing out the pin.

In order to replace the head pin you will need to remove the cover, remove the two retaining clips, then slide the old head pin out.
