Video Transcript for Lippert Components RV Awnings LC285500 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're talking a look at the Solara Power Awning Switch Kit. The replacement Solara power RV awnings switch kit and wire harness is a universal design for all Solara power awnings. This easy to install kit allows you to extend or retract your power awning with the simple push of a button, so you have extend and retract functions on the switch.It comes with the switch, the mount plate and the wire harness. The unit itself is made from a durable plastic construction, it's black in color. The kit should be used with, but does not include, the power awning bezel spacer. The product's made in the USA and the last thing I want to mention is the measurements real quick, so from edge to edge, side to side going this direction, I got a measurement of two and 5/16ths inches.

Edge to edge, up and down, I measure two and 13/16ths inches.That's going to do it for today's look at the Solara Power Awning Switch Kit.

Plan to install it on my 22' Legend Car Hauler to which I'm adding an 18 foot Solera power awning, Thank You!


This switch was easy to install and makes it better to be able to open and close my awning.


Great product used over an year and not a problem out of it

  • Switch Wiring Diagram for Solera Power Awning Switch Kit # LC285500
    I attached a wiring diagram for the Solera Power Awning Switch Kit # LC285500 for you to check out.

  • Are There 4 or 6 Terminals On The Back Of The Solera Power Awning Switch Kit LC285500?
    The Solera Power Awning Switch Kit # LC285500 does have 6 pins on the back of it, the included harness just has two internal jumper wires running between a few of the pins making it so there are only four wires. Since your switch has 6 individual wires you would just disconnect them one at a time from your old switch, and install them one at a time in the same position of your new switch to make sure everything functions correctly. You will not need to use the included harness. I included...

  • Switch for Solera Awning to Allow it to Power In and Out
    The Solera switch part # LC285500 that you referenced was designed to fit all Solera power awnings so it would work well to give you an inside switch to extend and retract. This would not affect the batteries ability to charge either.

  • Can an Awning Switch Be Added Outside on a Trailer?
    There should be no issue wiring a separate switch on the outside of your trailer. However, there won't be a way to do this without hardwiring the # LC285500 into your current switch. I should also mention that this isn't typically used outside, so it is not weather proof. If you do end up mounting it outside, it should be done somewhere protected from the rain.

  • 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 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 the Solera...

  • Can A 18V Solera Awning Be Converted To 12V?
    I spoke with Lippert, and they informed me that yes you can convert your 18V awning to 12V buy using a 2-way power feed wiring harness (found in # LCV000334969-362243) to go from the awning arm to your coach, and then from here you will need to hard wire to your power source. Also, since you mentioned that you wanted to use a switch, you can use either: -Solera Power Awning Switch Kit # LC285500 for black, Or, -Solera Power Awning Switch Kit # LC285499 for white.

  • 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...
