Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Components RV Awnings - LC717666

Michael: Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a quick look at the replacement controller and touch pad assembly for your Solera smart arm RV awning. This is going to replace the control box and nested touch pad on your Solera smart arm RV awning, and if you have any of those upgrades on your awning, like your wind sensor which is going to automatically retract the awning if there's high winds or your LED light kit, or even the infrared security sensor, you're going to be able to control all of those with the buttons on the screen here. So if you have any of those or all of those add-ons, you can use this to control those features.Because this is a Lippert product, you can trust that there's not going to be any sort of compatibility issues or anything like that. It's the same company that makes your Solera smart arm, so they know what they're doing. Be able to just plug it right in and be able to control that smart arm.

So if you're needing a replacement, this is what I would recommend. It's going to give you a lot of different features and just make everything very easy for you.That's going to complete our look at the replacement controller and touch pad assembly for your Solera smart arm RV awning. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

Product didnt last 30 days. This is the 3rd one I've been through and you won't warranty it. Needless to say I won't be ordering from etrailer again.

Product works but your shipping process needs work, I paid for 1st day air, it shipped on February 25 should have received it on February 28 but the actual label was not created until the 28th. So that delayed it another day causing me to lose a sell on a camper. Now I’m out the shopping cost and camper did not sell!

Fit perfect and is still working.

Shipping was on time. Received item, but was lacking instructions for installation. I had to go online to get the instructions. I could not install the item because the wiring harness had been damaged and was not operable. This will delay my evaluation of the controller.




by:

This is the third controller I've had to replace on this awning. This time I followed all the processes to prevent moisture from getting into it. I hope this is now a longer term fix. Trailer did a great job getting the replacement to me.




by:

Works fine, price is high but what can you do




by:

Delivery was faster than expected. Was pretty cool how you could watch the progress of the package. No damage to the package or part. Put the part in and it fixed the issue.




by:

Great price fast shipping!!!! Highly re commend.




by:

excellent




by:

It was just what I expected it to be shipping was fast and it is working as it should but I just installed it about 30 minutes ago so maybe the it will last

  • Troubleshooting A Controller For The Solera Smart Arm Awning That Has No Power
    It sounds like you have either a loose connection, or you may just have a bad controller. What you'll want to do first is, check the wiring to the controller, and make sure they are making full contact inside the controller and the motor. You're also going to want to make sure that there are no broken or damaged wires. If there is, you'll want to replace the wires in place and check again for functionality. The other thing you can check is the pins on the controller for corrosion. If...

  • Can Wind Sensor for Awning be Added to 2020 Cougar 367FLS
    The wind sensor part # LC715123 can be used on your 2020 Cougar 367FLS if the awning you have is a Solera Smart Arm. You mentioned a touch pad so if that touch pad looks like the part # LC717666 you'd have an awning setup that the sensor is compatible with.

  • Troubleshooting Touch Pad Not Working for Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning
    You may need to try resetting the outside touch pad on your Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning # LC517517. There are 2 different was that this can be accomplished. You can try unplugging the touch pad for 10 seconds (check for any corrosion on the plugs while doing this) and then if that doesn't fix it you can try clicking each button from top to bottom. Once you get to the bottom button hold it for 7-10 seconds. If none of this fixes the problem then you'll need to replace it with...

  • Troubleshooting Solera Smart Arm Power Issues
    It sounds like you either have a lose connection or a just a bad controller. I would start by ensuring your wires are making full contact in the controller and the motor and that you don't have any cuts or damage in the wires along the way that could be causing a short. Check to see if there's power at the motor while pressing the extend or retract buttons to narrow down the issue to the controller or wiring between the motor and the controller. You'll need a minimum of 11.5v for the system...

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Smart Arm Controller for Power Awning
    Your Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759517 sounds like it has a bad controller which I know you said you just replaced. I reached out to my contact at Lippert and they said that there may be an issue with the harness as well. They recommend checking the connections to ensure they are clean and free of corrosion or debris. The fact that you have power running through that controller to the motor using your interior switch shows that is partially working, but...

  • How to Tell if Replacement Controller For Solera Smart Arm Awning is Needed
    I'm sorry to hear about the troubles you are having with your awning, and you're right about the design; it certainly seems flawed if the AC water gets blown right toward the controller. From what you described, it seems very likely the controller is bad, but what you can do to check is use a circuit tester like # PTW2979 to test that there is power going to the controller. If there is, and the controller is not working, you will need the replacement: - Replacement Controller and Touchpad...

    The Solera Wind Sensor # LC715123 is only compatible with touchpad # LC717666 that is included in the Solera Smart Arms like part # LC759405 so you would not be able to use it with the regular arms from the Solera 12V Electric RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC434724.

  • Can Solera Smart Arm Touchpad be Added to Solera Power Awning to Convert to Smart Arm
    That's an excellent question, so I reached out to the manufacturer, who told me you would not be able to convert your standard Solera power awning to the Smart Arm by adding the Replacement Controller and Touchpad # LC717666. They said you will need the conversion kit with new awning arms because the Smart Arm has different wiring than the standard power awning, allow for its functions.
