You picked out a beautiful campsite for the weekend, a nice place to pause and relax. But before you can enjoy it, you have a whole checklist for getting your RV set up at your campsite. Getting your manual retractable awning extended is one of those tedious chores. Wrestling with your heavy canopy as you crank it all the way out, turn by turn, is exhausting and takes forever. It's time to find a better way to do this.


Solera 18V Battery-Powered RV Awning Conversion Kit Switch

With a battery-powered awning, there's no bother and there's no effort: push a button and your awning rolls in and out, just like that. It's perfect for dry camping when you don't want to drain your RV's battery. It gives you all the convenience of a powered awning without losing the independence from electricity that a manual awning gives you. Fully charged, these arms provide 20 to 25 uses before needing to be charged again (charge for 48 hours). If you ever run out of charge and need to get the awning back into place, there's a manual override built into the drive head that you can use to retract or extend your awning with a power drill (not included). No wiring is required, which makes for an easy installation.


Note: The manual override function is not available on 2017 Forest River Cherokee campers.


Best of all, this conversion kit is a great economical option. You don't need to buy new fabric or a new roller to upgrade to a power awning. You just need these new awning arms and endcaps, and you're good to go.


Automatic Rain Dump

One thing that can quickly ruin your camping trip is a broken awning. It's not easy or cheap to replace, and you can't really enjoy your patio without one. A big hazard to a healthy awning is rain: water pools in the fabric, stretching it out and putting strain on the arms with extra weight it wasn't designed to hold. Next thing you know, the fabric rips - the arms snap - the whole awning comes crashing down, slamming against your RV and leaving you with a big and costly problem.


For traditional awnings, it's up to you to run out in the rain and lower one of the arms yourself. If you're away from your RV when it starts to rain, you can only hope your awning isn't damaged when you get back. Solera awning arms are smarter than that. This conversion kit comes equipped with an automatic rain dump function. As soon as rainwater starts to pool in the fabric, one of the arms will automatically drop, giving your awning a pitched angle. The rainwater will then run off to one side, taking the pressure off your awning and your mind.


Manual Pitch Adjustment

Solera 18V Battery-Powered RV Awning Manual Pitch Adjustment

It's hard to get your awning in just the right place to keep you in the shade all day, especially with those awnings that are pretty high off the ground. Sometimes you need just a little slant to your awning to keep the sun out of your eyes. The manual pitch adjustment built into these arms gives you that option. Simply pull on one of the arms at the friction joint to drop that corner. It comes down easily and holds itself there for as long as you need it. When it's time to retract your awning, there's no need to readjust it; the awning will slide back into place.

Fantastic product. I am so very pleased. I installed it without an assistant.
I used ratchet straps around each end of the roller, and secured them to the brackets of the slide topper for support. I love that it has a built in battery.
A few sore muscles....lol

    The Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - Universal - 69" Arms - Black # LC434729 that you were looking at will only fit your Carefree awning if you have at least 2-1/2 inches (not feet) between the awning rail and top of door, and also 69" of unobstructed area from awning rail straight down. This kit is for 18V, but if you need 12V then go with Solera 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - Universal - 69" Arms - Black # LC434723.

  • Recommended Manual To Power Conversion Kit for an A&E Sunchaser Awning
    I have two manual to power awning conversion kits that will work with your A&E Sunchaser Awning, the Solera 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit part # LC434723 for black or part # LC434724 for white and the Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit part # LC434729 for black and part # LC434730 for white. The main difference between the two kits is that the 12V option will wire directly to your battery which requires you to do some routeing of power wires whereas the 18V option uses a rechargeable...

  • Recommended 17 Foot Power Awning for LQ Horse Trailer
    I recommend the Solera 12V XL Power RV Awning - 17' Wide - Extra-Long 9'8" Projection - White Fade # LCV000334998-362241 along with 3 of the Solera Awning Rail Extrusion - White - 8' Long # LC715216 with the final one cut to length. If you want to use black it is # LC715217. You will use butyl tape # 344270341411-1 and the screws # FA1131822 for installation. If you prefer a battery powered option, I recommend the same rail extrusion and mounting hardware, but you will then use the Solera...

  • Upgrading Manual Pull Out Dometic Awning to Powered Awning
    You definitely can! If you wanted to tie the power for the awning into the current 12V system on your RV then you'll need part # LC434723 for Black or part # LC434724 for White. These have 69" arms and are compatible with a Dometic awning. If you'd rather have a power awning that runs off of it's own power (so you don't have to connect wires to your RV) then we also have the 18V battery powered option in Black # LC434729 and White # LC434730. These are basically identical to the set mentioned...

  • Kit Needed to Upgrade A&E Manual Awning to Powered Awning on Travel Trailer
    To upgrade your A&E awning you can either use the 12V Solera Conversion Kit, White # LC434724 or Black # LC434723, OR the 18V Solera Conversion Kit, White # LC434730 or Black # LC434729. Both options use electricity to extend and retract the awning, but they also include manual overrides so that you can do it by hand in the event of a power failure. The 12V kits connect directly to the 12V power of your RV while the 18V version uses it's own (rechargeable) battery so it's a little easier...
