The Solera Classic Universal Awning Support Arms # LC434720 is designed to replace the arms and springs on your manual Dometic awning. You must have between 81"-96" in height between the top awning rail and where the bottom bracket mounts on the camper.

If you have less than the 81" you want to look at the Solera Classic Universal Awning Support Arms # LC434718. These are for a height of 68-81" tall from the top awning rail to the bottom bracket mount.

I recommend upgrading to a power awning with the Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434730 to convert the awning. These arms store an internal 18 volt battery that can be recharged from a 110 volt outlet. Once charged you operate the awning 22-25 times before recharging. This will let you have a powered awning that you can put out or take in by simply holding a switch on the awning arm without having to wire into your camper.
