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.

This product had shipping damage when received, did not hamper the products performance. Easy to install, and works as advertised. Love the ease of use. My canopy is a 19 footer, its heavy. I would recommend this conversion for all trailer owners.

Still working great. We live in our trailer, and its a little windy here I have to open and close the canopy a few times a week. This product has made my life much easier. Good quality, easy to install.

Love the new power awning! We replaced a manual Awning. It works great and looks great! Great price.
Thanks



by:

Great product! The only issue I had was with the battery. The item I received was an older product and the battery must have been sitting a while. Anyway I contacted the company and they sent me a new battery. Love it! Easy to follow instructions. Thanks!

Great instructions, easy install, works

Straight forward installation instructions. I installed it myself by making an end support yoke. It took me about 4 hours including the existing manual awning removal. I’m 73 years old.

I purchased this power awning a year ago to replace my manual awning and installed it with some help from my wife. Easy to follow online instructions are available. I used my existing vinyl as it was only a year old and I also reused the main tube the awning rolls up on. I just replaced the arms with the power awning arms. I chose this awning because I didn't want to worry about connecting to my coachs electrical system. I wish I would've upgraded years ago! My wife never liked putting the old awning up or down and it was one of the tasks reserved for me. Now if I'm away from the RV and she is worried about the wind picking up, she puts the awning up or down with the press of a button. Love it.
I don't normally do revievws. Installed on a 2009 42' Weekend Warrior 5th wheel.



by:

Great product, great customer support. Mine came with a bad battery and one phone call to the manufacturer and they sent me a new battery.
Down side....
1. It took over a month to get the battery (backordered).
2. While waiting for the battery I used a cordless drill to open & close the awning. This worked a couple times and then stripped out the gears on the awning. I ended up taking apart and welding them together and now I've had it working for almost a year with no issues.
Gave 4 stars because its a great product once I worked out the bugs and I'm not sure if the bugs were caused by me or the manufacturer.

Awesome product.Thanks to Bob and his crew for the great install. See the install video.

  • Will Solera 18-Volt Awning Conversion Kit LC434730 Work with Dometic Awning
    The Lippert 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434730 is a universal-fit product that works with Solera, Carefree and Dometic awnings to convert them from manual crank operation to 18V powered operation.

  • Is The Solera Awing Arm Conversion Kit Adjustable?
    While the Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434730 isn't adjustable the awning rail is usually oversized and there should be room for adjustment there. Additionally, you can also remeasure your awning arms to ensure that you're going to get the correct sized arms. All you'll need to do is measure the length of the extrusion from the top to the bottom as illustrate in the attached image. Once you get this figure, let me know and I'd be happy to see what we have for you.

  • How to Determine if Solera Awning Conversion Kit is Correct Length
    Measure from the awning rail on the side of your RV down to see how much clearance you have for an awning rail. The part # LC434730 requires 69 inches of clearance from the rail down. If you have the needed clearance this would be all you'd need.

  • Does Solera 18 Volt Awning Conversion Kit Have Lever for Extend/Retract like Dometic
    The Solera 18 conversion kit part # LC434730 that you referenced does not use that mechanism at all so you'd just need to remove that with the old caps when you go to install the Solera kit and not worry about reinstalling it or anything similar with the Solera kit.

  • Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit Fit for 2004 Holiday Rambler Admiral with Carefree Awning
    The Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434730 is an upgrade kit that is confirmed as a replacement for your Carefree Fiesta 18 ft manual awning. These arms will install in the same locations as your current awning arms and they just need 69" of unobstructed area from the awning rail straight down and then 2-1/2" of minimum clearance is needed between the awning rail and the top of your entry door. If all of this matches up then you're good to go!

  • Can the Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit Be Installed Slightly Left/Right of Old Arms
    In regards to the Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit part # LC434730, you should have no problem moving both arms down a bit for clearance in either direction. The awning rail is usually oversized so there should be room for adjustments here. This may or may not leave mounting holes exposed from the old arms but they can be filled with some silicone and would not cause any issues.

  • Easiest Power Awning Conversion Kit To Install On a 2010 Forest River Surveyor With Dometic Awning
    I recommend using the Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434730 on your 2010 Forest River Surveyor as this is the easiest kit to upgrade your camper to power awing. It uses a rechargeable battery pack that is located inside the front arm which means you do not have to run any additional wiring to operate your awing. The battery pack will allow you to operate your awing 22-25 times before needing charged. To charge the battery you only need plug the included charger into the connection...

  • Could Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434730 be Powered from Camper Battery
    Since the Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434730 runs on 18 volts it can't be powered from a 12 volt battery like what the camper battery would be rated for. For a similar 12 volt kit we have the part # LC759404 as well.

  • Battery Use in Solera 18V Power RV Awning
    The Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - Universal - 69" Arms - White # LC434730 does use a lithium-ion battery. The Replacement is 18.5V Lithium-Ion Battery for Solera 18V Power RV Awning # LC387959 if ever needed. Lithium batteries work best when you fully use the cycle meaning fully charge and almost fully discharge. You don't want to overcharge it and also don't want to fully discharge it. As close as you can get in that cycle the best life you'll see from the battery.

If you have less than the 81" you want to look at the Solera Classic Universal Awning Support Arms # LC434718. These are for a height of 68-81" tall from the top awning rail to the bottom bracket mount. I recommend upgrading to a power...

    I may have a solution for you to convert a manual awning to a powered awning, but I checked with Lippert on this and there is not a 63" version of the Solera 18v Power RV Awning Conversion Kit like the # LC434730. However, if you're looking to convert from a manual awning to a powered awning you could use the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - Programmable - 63" Arms - Black # LC759516 or Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - Programmable - 63" Arms -...

    You can replace the arms on your Dometic manual pull down awning with electrical arms, which is usually a much more convenient and cost effective option than replacing the entire awning itself. To replace the arms you can use either part # LC434723 for Black or part # LC434724 for White, which are 69" awning arms that will connect to your existing awning setup and are powered through your RV battery.

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.
