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. Dennis Zimmerman Gray Squirrel Campsites 444316

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 etrailer.com again! 553763

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 648031

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. 776592

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. 680506

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 etrailer.com for any other needs that might come up! 678178

  • Replacement Solera Awning Motor for a 2015 Keystone Cougar
    If your Solera awning came with your 2015 Keystone Cougar then the part # LC266149 that you referenced should be the correct fit. However, if you have a Solera awning that was manufactured after 2015 then you need the replacement motor # LC373566 instead.

  • What is Difference Between Solera Awning Motors LC373566 and # LC266149
    While the two motor kits you mentioned are very similar there is one key difference. The # LC266149 is for Solera awnings older than 2015 and the part # LC373566 is for Solera awnings made after 2015.

  • Availability of Gear Kit for Solera Power Awning Roller
    We have gear repair kits for the Solera power awnings with part # LC353964 but these gears are metal and you'd have to have a Solera power awning head. Can you see the brand that you have?

  • Recommended Cover and Replacement Awning Motor for 2014 Forest River Wildwood M-27RKSS
    If your 2014 Forest River Wildwood M-27RKSS has a Solera awning and it came with the trailer the correct part is the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149; if you got the awning on your trailer after 2015 you will need the Replacement Motor for Lippert Solera Power Awnings Manufactured after 2015 # LC373566. I have added links to video reviews of both parts for you to check out. In regards to a cover for your 2014 Forest River Wildwood M-27RKSS I strongly recommend the Adco...

  • Are Solera Awning Motors Interchangeable
    The appropriate Solera Awning motor is based on when your awning was manufactured. For Solera awnings manufactured through 2015 you need the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149. For Solera awnings manufactured after 2015 you need the aptly named Replacement Motor for Lippert Solera Power Awnings Manufactured after 2015 # LC373566.

  • Troubleshooting Solera Power Awning That Stopped Working
    There aren't any fuses in the motor or arm. It is possible that the motor burned out or the drive head gears # LC353964 have gone bad. If you need a replacement motor then you will use the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149. The best way to test is to remove the head housing and use a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to check the wires going into the motor for power. If you have power going into the motor when you press the switch then you know that the motor is bad. If...

  • What is the Difference Between Lippert Motor for Solera Awnings 373566 and 266149
    The # LC266149 is designed to work with Solera awnings that were manufactured before 2014, where the # LC373566 is designed for awnings built after 2015. Yes, the main noticeable difference is going to be the plug, but that directly effects how it is wired internally and the internal components may be slightly different in how they operate; according to Lipperty they are not interchangeable.

  • Recommended Replacement Arm For Solera RV Awning
    The replacement arms we offer for RV Awnings are designed to fit the Solera awnings. Finding the correct arm depends on the measurement of the wall-mount extrusion from top to bottom. I have attached a link to the product page on our website you can check out. We offer three different Black awning arms replacements. If you have the Solera Awning and need the shorter 61-inch arm you can order part # LC295743. If you have the standard flat awning you can order the 69-inch arm, part...

  • Solution for Broken Gear on the Solera Power Awning End Cap
    I spoke with my contact at Lippert and she informed me that the part you are looking for is the part # LC353964. This is a replacement drive gear kit designed to fit the Solera power awning the # LC266149 you referenced fits. The gear by itself is not available but with this kit you will get the gear you need and then have some spare parts left over.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Power Awning Drive Head for Dometic Component Awning with Bad Motor
    I reached out to my contact at Lippert and the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 has not been tested with Dometic awnings for gearing compatibility, so they cannot confirm a fit. What you can do is replace the power drive head assembly with the Solera Power Awning Plain Drive Head, White # LC266146. If you want the matching idler head you can use # LC266147.

  • 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...

  • Solution For Solera Manual Crank RV Head with Bad Gears
    The best solution we have for your situation is a new manual crank drive head for your Solera manual awning since the gears aren't available. For that you'd want the black drive head part # LC300031.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Replacement Motor Recommendation for Solera/Lippert Power Awning with Damaged Gears
    Just the housing and gear of the Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 isn't available by itself so you'd have to replace the entire 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Solera Awning Motor Retracting Slowly or Stopping
    I checked with the manufacturer for you, and they say that the Solera Awnings are slower when they retract. If you are sure there are 12 volts by testing with a Multimeter # BTMT15 the next thing to do is ensure the pitch arms aren't bent at all, which can cause issues. After that, they said to take a look at the ground wire before the switch, and make sure that has a good connection. Also make sure the switch is not damaged in any way, and if it needs replacing you can do that with...

  • What is Meant By Supporting Arms When Installing Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149
    I found the question and answer you referenced: 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. So basically he is saying that you open the awning about a foot and then have someone hold the arm you are replacing the...

  • 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...

  • 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.
