Video Transcript for Lippert Solera Awning Manufactuer Demo LC266147

A better awning has arrived. Solera annual awnings. Knowing inaudible 00:00:05 components is the industry's leading innovator, multiple manufacturers approached us to engineer an awning that solves several design flaws. We took the challenge and designed a better awning to enhance the mobile lifestyle. Already, the Solera manual awning is being praised for its innovative design. Engineered better.

We engineered our Solera manual awning to be easy to use. Our hook and turn manual operation allows RVers to easily expand and retract the awning with little effort. Great against the elements. The anti-scuff, anti-mildew fabric with a quality sewn hem holds up against the elements. The awning fabric is also cold crack protected up to minus 25 degrees Fahrenheit.

Intelligent design. The Solera manual awning can also be easily upgraded to power. There is nothing to disassemble and our universal fabric design reduces SKU count by thousands. Industry first adjustable friction joint. In the extend position, the Solera manual awning is equipped with an industry-first friction joint that allows for easier side-to-side adjustments.

The awning pitch can be set manually by adjusting the articulating arm tip one side of the awning to allow water runoff. Quick facts. The Solera manual awning has an easy-to-use hook and rod system. Simply insert the hook into the awning head and turn the rod clockwise to extend and counter-clockwise to retract. Its internal gearbox allows you to stop the awning at any point during extension or retraction. With the Solera manual awning, there's no rafter arm to lock in place.

The friction joint provides added stability, so it doesn't need to be locked in place like other awnings on the market. Fabric care. If, for any reason, the Solera manual awning must be retracted while it's still wet, it must be extended again as soon as possible and allowed to dry before retracting for storage. Making sure the awning is dry before storage will help prevent the formation of mildew and extend the life of the fabric. Mildew does not form on the fabric itself, but on accumulated dust and dirt. Periodically clean vinyl or woven acrylic fabric using a mixture of one quarter cup of dish soap mixed with five gallons of warm water. Liberally slosh the mixture on top of the fabric, roll the awning up, and let it sit for five minutes. This will apply the fixture to both sides of the awning.

Replacement Idler Head for Solera Manual Crank-Style Awnings - Black - LC273479

Replaces the idler head of your Solera crank-style, manual awning.

This is cheaply made part. I bought it to replace the shaft that was bent in my original one. Since I wasn't able to find the shaft by itself anywhere I was forced to purchase the whole head assembly. The screws holding the back cover on are stripped out, and the "metal" part of this assembly is made with cheap pot metal of some kind. I have only used it a couple of times so far to test the awning and it seems to be working. It is an exact replacement to the original, but these things just aren't made of high quality material. I ordered several items at the same time and it took 2 weeks to get half the order and 3 weeks to get the other half.

  • Are There 19' Wide RV Awnings Available With Only An 8' Projection
    We don't currently offer a complete kit with for an 19' awning with only an 8' projection so you would have to buy all the components separately or use the Solera XL 12V Power RV Awning - 19' Wide - 9'8" Projection - Black Fade # LCV000334966-362243 or White Fade # LCV000335007-362241.
