I was sent all the correct parts at a reasonable price. That’s more than me dealer could do for me. The price was reasonable enough that I ordered the replacement part I needed plus an extra. Installation was easy so I didn’t need any tips

My representative was able to find exactly what I needed. Delivery was early as well.



- LC280343
by:

I pinched it in the arm of the awning well I was installing it and it snapped the eyelet right off. So I never got a chance to try it



- LC280343
by:

I've made several purchases as an RV or from a trailer and have never been disappointed if I make a mistake they help me correct it but in most cases because they have good customer support I don't make mistakes I get the right product each time and every time

The gas shock was delivered on time and works perfectly!! It was a replacement for a broken one on our Wildwood 27RKS electronic awning. It is stronger than the factory ones, so we will be replacing the other side to make them match.

  • Replacement for Gas Strut 654150
    Though we don't carry that exact part, we do have a strut with the same dimensions that is likely to work. Based on my research the gas strut 654150 is 26.46" when extended, has two metal ends and is 120 lbs of force. The strut we carry which is nearly identical is Solera Gas Strut for Short and Flat Awning Arms # LC280343. This strut is 26.46" when extended (and 15.04" when retracted), exerts 124 lbs of force and has the same pair of metal ends. If yours is the same dimension when retracted...

  • Stabilus Gas Strut 654150 Replacement
    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...

  • Correct Replacement For a Stabilus 654150 Gas Strut
    Your Stabilus strut measures about 26-1/2 inches when extended and exerts 120 lbs of force. The Lippert Solara # LC280343 strut you'd looked at is almost identical, at about 26-1/2 inches when extended with 124 lbs of force. The strut is right at 15 inches long when retracted, so if that favorably matches up with your existing strut, it'll be a good repalcement.

  • Replacement Strut for Stabilus Lift-O-Mat on Dometic Awning
    The Solera Gas Strut part # LC280343 is designed for Lippert-Solera branded awnings. That said, it should be able to be used with others but you'd need to verify the dimensions in order to ensure compatibility. The length for this strut will be 26.46" when extended and 15.04" when retracted. It puts out 124 lbs of force so as long as this all matches what you have you'll be good to go. I unfortunately cannot cross reference any Stabilus Lift-O-Mat parts.

  • How are Gas Struts Attached to Awning?
    The Solera Gas Strut 26", 124 lbs for Short and Flat Awning Arms # LC280343 attaches between awning arms via pins, which go through the opening on the two ends of the strut. According to the manufacturer, the openings on the strut are 3/8", as you can see in the accompanying photo.

  • Do You Have A Replacement Gas Strut For My Stabilus Lift-O-Mat 654150
    The Stabilus Lift - O -Mat 654150 has a length of 26.46". I do not offer a direct replacement, but the Solera Gas Strut 26", 124 lbs for Short and Flat Awning Arms, part # LC280343, will work for you if the eyelet connections are the same. This gas strut exerts 124 lbs of force and it measures 15.04", retracted, to 26.46", extended.

  • Replacement Gas Strut for 654150 0550N 091/16
    I have a solution for you but we do not carry an exact replacement for the 654150 0550N 091/16 strut . The strut we carry that is almost the same is the Solera Gas Strut for Short and Flat Awning Arms item # LC280343 that you were looking at. The Solera Gas Strut strut is 26.46" when extended and 15.04" when retracted. It exerts 124 lbs of force and has the same pair of metal ends. You will just need to ensure yours is the same length when it is retracted.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.
