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.


Programmable Power Arms

Solera Smart Arm Conversion Kit Touchpad

The Solera Smart Arm 12V power RV awning conversion kit is the first ever programmable option for your trailer or RV. You can easily extend or retract your existing awning with the push of a button. The weatherproof touchpad mounts directly on the base of the right awning arm for easy access. In other words, you no longer have to climb back into your RV to operate your awning. And if you ever find yourself without power, 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).


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.


Intelligent Smart Arm Functionality

Weatherproof Touchpad

Solera Smart Arm Conversion Kit Touchpad

On top of extending and retracting your awning, the programmable touchpad enables you to activate and program your awning's settings using the 1-touch safety lock button. Once programmed and locked in place, your settings stay the way you want them. The touchpad also lets you activate and program optional add-on features (sold separately).


Add-On Features

Solera Smart Arm Wind Sensor

The Wind Sensor upgrade (LC715123 - sold separately) offers protection for your awning in poor weather conditions. If strong wind is detected, the awning will automatically retract, giving you piece of mind if you're away from your campsite when bad weather hits. The touchpad enables you to toggle between 3 different levels of wind sensitivity, or you can deactivate the wind sensor altogether. Just mount the sensor below the drive head on the awning arm and plug the wiring harness directly into the Smart Arm touchpad.


If you have an LED light strip on your awning, or you'd like to get one, you can control it right from the awning arm. It gives you 3 levels of brightness to choose from. If you're enjoying your patio as the sun's going down, there's nothing more convenient than being able to turn on the lights right there.

Solera Smart Arm Infrared Security System

To take your awning lights to the next level, another cool feature to add is an infrared security sensor (LC715124 - sold separately). When it detects motion or heat, it automatically turns the awning lights on. The sensor is a great security feature, as well as a convenient backup if you're returning to your RV after dark and need some light to get inside. The sensor range is approximately 8' with a 180-degree radius from its mounting location. The security sensor can be armed with the press of a button on the touchpad. Installation is simple. Just snap the unit into place on the bottom of the drive-side awning arm, just beneath the touchpad.


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 Smart Arm Conversion Kit 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.

Where do I start? This kit does not include the end caps you need for a manual conversion, like from a Dometic arm. Eventhough the description and instructions say they come with the arms, the manufacturer (Lippert) packages them from a faulty picture (see above). Took three try to Lippert before I found someone in Parts to admit they made a mistake. No one had them in stock so I paid $80 for a pair on eBay. Arms work great! But I promise you, this will be the last Lippert purchase. etrailer just kept sending me to Lippert. Wow, thanks everyone! Can I do this again? Reputation defender will no doubt prevent this from being posted.

Review from a similar Smart Arm in Accessories and Parts


Had to wait a bit to get them but it was right in the middle of the Covid hysteria. Got them in and installed in one day. The wiring was a little different but I didn’t have a problem figuring it out with the help of the excellent instructions.

Review from a similar Smart Arm in Accessories and Parts


Ordered this product to replace / convert a Dometic system which, despite little use, had to be replaced twice. I was notified product was out of stock after I ordered it and it took about 1 1/2 months for it to be shipped. Once shipped however it arrived within a week to Newfoundland in eastern Canada. Packaging was somewhat fragile however appears to have arrived without any damage. Conversion kit and online instructions make it look easy. Looking forward to getting it installed so I can get some end of summer use. Overall appears to be a great product.

  • Does Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit Require Separate Endcap Order
    The Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759405 comes with everything you'd need and would not require you to also purchase endcaps.

  • Can The Solera Smart Arm Awning Conversion Kit Be Installed On A Non-Flat Surface?
    Since you already have an awning covering your window on your Weened Warrior, the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759405 will still work. It isn't ideal to install an awning over a window, as awnings should be installed on flat surfaces for the best results, but, seeing as though you already have an awning installed over your window, a non-flat surface, it shouldn't be an issue.

  • What Awning Matches With Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning

  • Arms to Replace Dometic Power Awning 8952xxx Arms
    We do have arms you can use as replacements for your Dometic 8952xxx Power Awning, though just the adjustable arm portion alone is not available. What we do have are the Solera Smart Arm assemblies in either 63 inch or 69 inch lengths.

  • Does Solera 18V Power RV Awning Conversion Have Features of 12V Smart Arm
    The 18 volt awning conversion kits are different than the 12 volt Smart Arm kits, so they don't have the exact same features. The 18 volt has just the wall switch, while the Smart Arm has that as well as a touchpad at the base of the awning arm. The Smart Arm also has available accessories such as a wind sensor that the 18 volt doesn't have, though both do have the auto rain dump feature. For both options, you can choose from either Black or White, and need 69 inches of space straight...

  • How Does Wind Trigger Solera Smart Arm Wind Sensor Kit
    I reached out to Lippert, the manufacturer, about what will trigger the Solera Smart Arm Wind Sensor Kit # LC715123. They told me that it is not actually a certain miles per hour of wind that will trigger the awning closing with this kit. The way it works is that the kit actually senses vibration in the Smart Arms this attaches to, and that is what the kit senses to know when to close the awning. It has three levels of sensitivity (or can be turned off) that detect different levels of...
