Perfect!!

Arrived on time and perfect fit. Theres a few things to do making installation easier. Disassemble the linkage on the pitch arm and it goes right in. Makes it way easier having an extra set of hands. Marty from etrailer called to verify my address and contacted me to make sure it all arrived. Best customer service i can ask for.

  • Measuring to Pick Out Replacement Gas Strut for Solera Awning
    While I don't know exactly what awning gas strut replacement you'd need I can easily help you figure it out as long as the awning you have is a Solera brand awning. You will need to measure your struts when extended and retracted and we'll be able to know what you need. The part # LC260282 measures 24.38" when extended and 14.70" when retracted and the part # LC280343 measures 26.46" when extended and 15.04" when retracted.

  • Replacement Gas Strut for Solera Awning
    The frame length of your Solera awning won't matter as much as the type of awning arm that you've got will. If you have a Solera Short or Flat awning arm assembly (which will use something like the Solera Short Awning Support Arm # LC351829 (a pair) or Flat Awning Support Arm # LC281154) you will need the Solera Gas Strut 26", 124 lbs for Short and Flat Awning Arms # LC280343. For pitched awning arms such as Solera 66-1/8" Pitched Awning Support Arm # LC266169 you need the Solera Gas Strut...

  • Solera Gas Strut Installation When Compression is Needed to Fit Mounting Locations
    The Solera Gas Strut, 124 to 144 lbs for Pitched Awning Arms # LC260282 is likely exactly what you need. To compress it to fit the holes, I recommend attaching one end of the strut and that will allow you the leverage to start to compress the strut so it can fit the other attachment location.

  • How To Choose Correct Replacement Stabilus Lift-O-Mat Strut for RV Awning
    I might have an option for you but we don't carry Stabilus Lift-O-Mat. That said, we do offer replacement struts for certain awnings such as the Solera Pitched RV Awnings part # LC260282 or the Solera Flat RV Awnings part # LC280343. If you can let me know which exact awning you have I'd be glad to confirm if we have a replacement strut.

  • Replacement Awning Strut or Support for Carefree Awning
    The Solera Gas Strut, 124 to 144 lbs for Pitched Awning Arms # LC260282 which is 24 inches or the Solera Gas Strut 26", 124 lbs for Short and Flat Awning Arms # LC280343 are the two options we have. They are shorter than what you describe by far. You may want to consider replacing the entire assembly with the Solera Universal Awning Support Arms for RVs - Hybrid - 69" Arms - Black # LC434727.

  • Which Solera Awning Replacement Gas Strut Do I Need
    I'm not seeing any actual Solera Awnings that are 5'9", which would be quite small for an awning that uses a gas strut. With that said, I can tell you exactly what you need to measure to determine which gas strut replacement you'll want to use. The # LC260282 measures 24.38" when extended and 14.70" when retracted, so if you measure your strut and get those dimensions you can use that strut.. The other options is the # LC280343 which measures 26.46" when extended and 15.04" when retracted. If...

  • Replacement Strut for Solera Flat Awning Support Arm that Won't Hold in Place
    I would agree that it does sound like you need a new strut for your Solera Pitch Arm part # LC281154 that you referenced and for that you'd want the part # LC260282 and you'd be set.

  • Does Replacement Solera Power Awning Gas Strut Unscrew from the Two End Pieces
    I did some checking and it appears that the gas strut # LC260282 is held to the support arms with bolts, pins, or rivets that go through the eyelets at each end, see picture. It does not appear that the strut unscrews from those eyelets. The manufacturer was unable to provide a comprehensive method for replacement.

  • Stronger Gas Struts For A 25 Foot Lippert Solera Awning
    For your Solera Awning, I recommend taking a look at the: -Solera Gas Strut, 124 to 144 lbs for Pitched Awning Arms # LC260282. This is a universal for manual and powered Solera awnings, measures 24" long, and has a compression force range of 124-144 lbs, & the extra 19 lbs of strength will help hold your awning up much better.

  • What Replacement Parts Do I Need For My Solera Awning
    Without seeing your awning, I have no idea of how many parts you might need. I do know you have the Solera Awning, model V000431840. If you need to replace this awning's entire single arm assembly, which is the pitch arm and the gas strut, you will need the Replacement Short Arm Assembly for RV Awnings - 63" Long - Black, part # LC404523. This comes with everything you need, including the retainer washers. (The washers need to be replaced after you remove the pitch arm and gas strut.) If...

  • Which is Correct Gas Strut for Solera Awning
    The correct gas strut for your powered or manual Solera awning will simply depend on which Solera awning arm assembly you have. If you have a Solera Short or Flat awning arm assembly (which will use something like the Solera Short Awning Support Arm # LC351829 for a pair or Flat Awning Support Arm # LC281154) you will need the Solera Gas Strut 26", 124 lbs for Short and Flat Awning Arms # LC280343.

  • Availability of Replacement Gas Strut for Trailer Awning
    We do have a couple of replacement gas struts available for Solera Awnings but I wasn't able to track down any information on your awning using the numbers you provided. What I recommend doing is measuring your existing strut to see if one of our options will work. The Solera Gas Strut # LC280343 measures 26.46 inches when extended and 15.04 inches when retracted. The Solera # LC260282 measures 24.38 inches when extended and 14.70 inches when retracted.

  • Recommended Replacement Gas Struts For Solera RV Awning Arms
    Hey Kevin, If you have a 63" long assembly like the # LC404523 then you would want to go with the 24" Replacement Gas Strut for Pitched Solera RV Awnings # LC260282. If you have the longer 69" awning arms then you would need the 26" # LC280343. The 63" and 69" measurements are just the vertical height of the mounting bracket for the arms that's physically bolted to the wall of the RV.

  • Replacement Gas Struts For A Solera Awning With Pitched Arms

  • Replacement Gas Struts For The Awning Arms On A 2015 Heartland Wilderness 3175RE
    You'll want to first verify the brand of the awning to ensure you actually have a Solera before purchasing anything. If you look at the base of the awning arms it will typically either say Solera (Lippert) or A&E (Dometic). If you have an A&E awning you would need to reach out to Dometic directly for replacements. For Solera we have the following replacement shocks depending on the size/type of the arms: For short or flat support awning arms you'll need part # LC280343 (measures 26" extended/15"...

  • Potential Replacement Gas Strut Options For a Dometic Awning
    We have two different gas struts available for RV awnings. They are both intended to be used with Solera awnings, as we do not carry Dometic awnings and do not have replacement parts for them. - Replacement Gas Strut for Short and Flat Solera RV Awnings # LC280343, extended length of 26" and closed length of 15" - Replacement Gas Strut for Pitched Solera RV Awnings # LC260282, extended length of 24" and closed length of 15" One of these replacement gas struts could potentially work with...

  • Solution for Replacement Strut for Carefree Awning
    Everything I can find on that part number indicates it is from a Carefree awning. We only have replacement struts for Lippert awnings which are # LC260282 and # LC280343. I would try checking with Carefree to see if a replacement is available. If not, you could replace the arms with the Solera Hybrid Universal Arms # LC434727 which are compatible with the Carefree Spirit, Fiesta, Simplicity, Traveler, and Eclipse.

  • Removal of Starlock Washer on Solera Gas Strut
    I reached out to the manufacturer who told me there isn't any type of recommended way to remove the starlock washer on the Solera Gas Strut # LC260282 but that "most people shim something behind, hit and tap it with a screwdriver to pry it open/loose." I was told that doing this should allow the washer to come off pretty easily.

  • Picking Out Replacement Struts for Solera Awning Gas Struts
    If you are unsure which Solera awning strut replacement you need you can measure what you have to determine which you could need. The # LC260282 measures 24.38" when extended and 14.70" when retracted and the # LC280343 measures 26.46" when extended and 15.04" when retracted. The fittings of the struts need to press on. There's not really much more beyond that when installing them.

  • What Purpose Do the Solera Gas Struts for Awnings Serve
    The purpose of the Solera Gas Strut # LC260282 is to add strength and support to your awning arms (they support the arms, not the fabric). They have proven to provide long term durability and help to keep your awning extending and retracting smoothly. The Solera Gas Strut # LC260282 works with pitched awning arms while the Solera Gas Strut # LC280343 works with short/flat awnings.

    We have two Solera struts available for Solera awnings with the part # LC280343 for if you have a short or flat awning or the part # LC260282 for if you have a pitched arm awning. The numbers you listed aren't part numbers so I wasn't able to determine what you have based on that.
