Ask the Experts about this Lippert Accessories and Parts



  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Replacement Gas Struts For A Solera Awning With Pitched Arms

  • 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.

  • Troubleshooting New Solera RV Awning Strut LC280343 Not Holding Up Awning
    Assuming you got the correct strut from Amazon if you have the # LC280343 on your RV currently this should be the correct replacement. There isn't an easy way to install these wrong as well so it's also possible the ones you got are bad. Older shocks needed to be pumped a couple times before you'd install them so you might try that and see if the pressure changes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Solution for Needing Replacement for Stabilus Strut 654150
    I do have a suggestion, because we have a gas strut with with dimensions that are the same as the Stabilus 654150 which is likely to work; the Stabilus strut measures 26.46" when extended with 120 lbs of force. The nearly identical strut we offer is the Solera Gas Strut for Short and Flat Awning Arms # LC280343. The Solera strut also measures 26.46" when extended, as well as 15.04" when retracted, while exerting 124 lbs of force. So long as you can verify your strut has the same dimensions...

  • Awning Part
    I reached out to my contact at Lippert regarding the part that you need. The only two replacement part/assemblies that they sell, for your model number, is the Lippert # LC375994 "Pitch Arm" (not the part you need) and the Lippert # LC281154 Support Arm assembly which includes the part that you need.

  • 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 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 # LC295743 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...

  • 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 # LC295743 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 24",...

  • 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...

  • Are Replacement Pitch Arms Available for Solera RV Awning
    We have replacement support arms from Solera that measure 69 inches such as the Solera 69" Standard Flat Awning Support Arm # LC281154 (Black) and Solera 69" Standard Flat Awning Support Arm # LC281152 (White) but no replacement arms that are just 14.25". I'm not sure which part you were referencing as looking like the photo but the closest thing we have to an arm with that measurement are replacement gas struts (it should be noted the aforementioned arms do come with a gas strut).
