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.

Review from a similar Smart Arm in Accessories and Parts


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.

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.

    The Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - Programmable - 63" Arms - Black Item # LC759516 come with the endcap replacement that only works with the CareFree models: Spirit, Fiesta, Simplicity, Traveler, and Eclipse.

I've linked our page of roller tubes and awning kits so you can easily look for your size and find a color you prefer.

  • 63" Solera Smart Arm Conversion Kit Recommendation
    We do not carry any awning arms that are smart and non-programmable. Instead, what we do carry is the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759516. This kit will upgrade your existing awning, to a powered one that extends and retracts by the push of a button. This kit also measures 63" long, is black in color, and has a programmable touchpad.

  • Replacement Awning Arm Option for Dometic 8952002.400UL Awning
    The 8952002.400UL number comes back to a Dometic power awning arm. The Replacement Support Arm Assembly for Lippert Edge 58" Awning LC77VR would not be the correct replacement. We do not carry a direct replacement for your 8952002.400UL because we do not carry Dometic awnings. The closest that we would have is the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759516 which works with Dometic awnings.

  • Width Needed for 63 Inch Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit
    In regards to mounting the 63 inch Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit, Lippert has told us the wall-mounted brackets require a minimum width of 2-1/2 inches for installation, but that at least a 3 inch width would be preferred. That is true for the width of the brackets for both colors of the conversion kit: - Black: Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759516 - White: Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759404

  • Is There A Preference Between The 63" And 69" Solera Awning Support Arm For A 60" Arm Length
    I did contact Lippert Components on your behalf to look into this. There really is not a material difference between the two other than the 69-inch arm # LC759517 will have a slightly flatter projection than the 63 inch Arm # LC759516. That said, the 63 inch would make more sense being closer to your current 60 inch arm length and is my recommendation. Included is a video resource for additional information.

  • How to Determine Length of Arms For Solera Awning Conversion
    The length of the arms you need for the Solera awning conversion kit simply depends on the amount of space you have for the brackets, which is what the "arms" are referring to. So what you'll need to do is measure from your awning rail straight down to find the length of the arms you need. For example, if you measure from your awning rail straight down and get at least 63 inches you can use the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - Black # LC759516 or White # LC759404.

  • Choosing The Correct Solera Arm Conversion Kit For Awning Arms That Measure 73" Long
    The 63" and 69" measurements you're referring to, is not the length of the arms, but rather the amount of unobstructed space from the awning rail straight down that is needed. So if you have 69" of unobstructed space, # LC434729 or 63" of unobstructed space, # LC759516 from the awning rail down, then these will work for you. In addition to the needed unobstructed space, you're also going to need a minimum of 2-1/2" of clearance needed between awning rail and top of entry door. The instructions...

    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 -...

  • Does The 18V Solera Power RV Awning Have A Rechargeable Battery And Can An LED Be Added
    The Solera 18V Power RV Awning # LC730523 is rechargeable, and includes a 110V charger kit . The battery is able to run 22-25 times before needing to charged again. Unfortunately adding an LED light is not possible with this awning. Adding an LED kit is based on the awning fabric. To add an LED light you'd need to upgrade your awning arms with a conversion kit like the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759516. From here, you can add an LED light # LC674282.

We also have the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759516 (63") and # LC759517 (69") available and are compatible with Carefree awnings.

You will be able to choose from either black or white in color, and either 63" or 68" arms. - Black: Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - 63" Arms # LC759516 or 69" Arms # LC759517 - White: Solera Smart Arm 12V...

    I do have an option for you but you cannot add the Solera Smart Arm Wind Sensor Kit part # LC715123 to a Solera 18V Power RV Awning. The only way to obtain the wind sensor is to upgrade your arms using the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit part # LC759516 for 63" arms or part # LC759517 for 69" arms.

  • 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...
