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


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.

  • Converting Manual Awning of RV to Power Awning
    We have kits like the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759517 which is designed to convert Lippert, Solera, Dometic, and Carefree manual awnings to power awnings. The install is pretty simple and straight forward but we do not have any videos at this time.

  • Troubleshooting Solera Smart Arm RV Awning System that Stopped Working
    Check the breaker of the circuit panel of your RV that the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759517 is ran to. It sounds like the breaker tripped.

  • Can 69 Inch Solera Smart Arms be Used for 20 Foot Awning Instead of 63 Inch Arms
    Yes, you can use the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759517 with 69 inch arms for your 20 foot awning. The only reason you wouldn't be able to use these arms is if you do not have the 69 inches of open space needed on the wall of your RV from the awning rail straight down to mount them. You also need a minimum clearance of 2-1/2 inches between the awning rail and the top of the entry door.

  • Will The Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit Work With A 15 Foot Awning?
    Yes, the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759517 that you mention will work just fine with your 15 x 88 awning. You'll want to ensure that you have 69" of space on the wall of your RV from the awning rail, straight down for the installation of the wall mounted brackets, as well as, 2-1/2" of clearance between the awning rail and the entry door.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Power Awning Arms for a 2019 Heartland North Trail 24BHS
    The Solera 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit part # LC434723 does indeed come with both the drive and idler side awning arms so this would more than likely be what you need. In order to confirm you just need to make sure the arms are 69" long and do not have the Smart Arm feature (control panel on bottom of drive arm). If you do have the Smart Arm feature then you would need the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit part # LC759517.

  • 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.

  • Parts Needed to Convert an Older Dometic Awning From manual to Power
    The closest manual to power conversion kit that we have to your 73" arms is the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit # LC759405 (for white) or # LC759517 (for black) which are 69". We have contacted the manufacturer in the past regarding your particular model information and it appears you might have an older design. With that being said there are a couple of things you can quickly check on your current awning to verify if this will work for you. First make sure that your...

  • Can Solera Smart Arm Wind Sensor Kit and Infrared Security Sensor Both be Installed
    Yes, you can absolutely install both the Solera Smart Arm Wind Sensor Kit # LC715123 along with the Solera Smart Arm Infrared Security Sensor # LC715124 on a Solera Smart Arm Assembly such as the 69 Inch # LC759517. There are connections for both of these on the Smart Arm's touch pad and they install on different areas of the arm which will allow both to be installed. I have added links to video reviews of both the infrared sensor and wind sensor for you to take a look at.

    We do have the Replacement Short Arm Assembly for RV Awnings # LC404523 which will work to replace a Carefree awning arm. The length on this ranges from 63"-68". 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.

  • Parts Needed for Converting Electric Awning of 2018 Thor RV to Smart Awning
    We do have kits that are designed to convert a standard RV awning to a smart awning but they include new arms and heads since that's the easiest and best way to make the change. We have 69 inch and 63 inch options available in black and white. In the 69 inch arm length we have the black # LC759517 or white # LC759405. For 63 inch we have the part # LC759516 for black or # LC759404. You wouldn't have to buy new awning fabric though as you can reuse what you have now with any of the mentioned...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Manual Awning to Powered Arms
    If your arms are damaged then your best bet is going with a complete awning kit since this will give you everything you need to replace all of the potentially damaged components. I recommend using the Solera 18V Power RV Awning - 20' Wide - Rechargeable Battery - Black Fade # LC729517 which uses a rechargeable battery to power the awning; we do not have a plug in powered awning, but this would eliminate the need for any connection to the battery of the coach. This also would replace your...

  • 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. So that means you will need to have either 63 or 69 inches of space straight down from your awning rail for installation. The Smart Arm assemblies are also available in either Black or White in color: - 63 Inches: Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion...

  • Can Solera Smart Arm Conversion Kit LC759517 Be Controlled By A Remote?
    The Solera Smart Arm 12v Power RV Conversion Kit # LC759517 you were looking at can only be controlled via the included switch which will need to get installed on your RV, or by the buttons on the arm. You will not be able to re use your current remote. This kit does give you quite a few upgrades over your current system by allowing you to add on a wind sensor # LC715123, infrared sensor # LC715124, and LED light kit # LC674282. I included a few video reviews for you to take a look at.

  • 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...

  • Converting An Old Manual Crank Awning To A Powered Awning On A 2001 Newmar Dutch Star
    For your 2001 Newmar Dutch Star, if you didn't want to replace the entire awning you could just replace the awning arms with powered arms by using the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV # LC759517. This kit is designed to a manual crank Dometic, Carefree, or Solera awning. If you wanted to replace the entire setup, I recommend the Solera 12V XL Power Awning # LCV000334966-362243. This awning is powered, 19' wide with a 116" reach, and includes all the necessary hardware needed for installation. This...

    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...

The Solera Smart Arm Wind Sensor Kit # LC715123 is only something that can be used with the Smart Arm kits, the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning Conversion Kit - 69" Arms - White # LC759404 or Black # LC759517.

  • Recommended Solera Powered Awning Arms For A 2008 Komfort Trailblazer Travel Trailer
    To replace your current awning arms with Solera Powered Awning Arms you'll need part # LC759517. These arms can splice to the wiring you already have in place for your old Dometic awning. While Solera fabric/roller assemblies are compatible with other brands, the arms are only compatible with Solera branded assemblies. These arms are 69" in length so they'll fit nicely in place of your old arms. I do recommend using some butyl tape # 344270341411-1 on the brackets during installation...
