Solera Smart Arm awning dimensions

Programmable Power Awning

Solera Smart Arm Programmable Awning

The Solera Smart Arm 12V awning is the first ever programmable awning for your trailer or RV. You can easily extend or retract the 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.


Intelligent Smart Arm Functionality

Weatherproof Touchpad

Smart Arm Weatherproof Touchpad Controller

The programmable touchpad, which is located at the base of the drive-side awning arm, offers a unique set of features. The extend and retract buttons let you operate the awning from outside your RV. The touchpad enables you to activate and program this unit's optional add-on features as well. And a 1-touch safety lock button ensures that the awning's settings stay the way you want them.


Add-On Features

Smart Arm Wind Sensor Upgrade

The Wind Sensor upgrade (LC715123 - sold separately) offers protection for the Smart Arm awning in poor weather conditions. If extreme 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're running low on power, or if you have a power outage, a manual override allows you to extend and retract the awning using a power drill (not included) with a 7/16" socket.


Smart Arm Infrared Security Sensor Upgrade

The Infrared Security Sensor (LC715124 - sold separately) provides an extra level of security while you're camping. If the sensor detects any heat or motion, the awning lights (sold separately) will turn on automatically. 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.


Durable Vinyl Fabric

White Fade Solera Awning Fabric

The durable awning fabric holds up to the rigors of the outdoors. It's made of premium 13.5-oz vinyl, which is an upgrade over the 10-oz fabric used in many awnings. In addition, this fabric features heat-welded seams to prevent leaks. The fabric is cold-crack protected to -25 degrees Fahrenheit, so it won't crack or degrade during cold weather.


Manual Angle Adjustment

Solera Smart Arm awning manual pitch adjustment

The Solera Smart Arm awning offers manual pitch adjustment for each arm to keep you shaded from the sun all day long. This is a great feature on hot summer days. When the awning is initially extended, it will be parallel to the ground. This provides protection in the middle of the day, when the sun is high in the sky.


As the sun gets lower throughout the day, you can tilt the awning to one side to effectively block the sun. When you're ready to retract the awning, you can do so no matter what position the arms are in. There's no need to readjust the pitch to its original, parallel position before retracting.


Auto Rain Dump Feature

This awning also makes a great rain shield. Its automatic rain dump feature prevents too much water from building up in the canopy, so there's no need to manually adjust the pitch to release the excess water. When the arms sense that there is about 10 lbs of water pooled in the canopy, the dump feature will automatically activate. The awning arms will reposition to release the pooled water and then return to their original position. Just don't get caught walking by when it happens!


Installation

Solera Smart Arm awning installation

An awning rail (LC715216 - sold separately), which is used to anchor the fabric of the awning to the RV, is required for installation. You will need a minimum clearance of 2-1/2" between the awning rail and the top of the entry door. You'll also need 69" of open space on the RV wall - from the awning rail straight down - so that the wall-mounted brackets for the awning arms can be installed.


The roller tube, which comes with the awning fabric already mounted, attaches to the awning arms. The other side of the fabric slides into the awning rail on the RV. Then use the included self-tapping screws to secure the arms to the wall-mounted bracket. The awning drive motor wires into the Smart Arm touchpad, which can either be connected to your battery or wired directly into your RV by way of a converter.

Review from a similar Solera Smart Arm in RV Awnings


So far, this awning is going on the trailer fine. Everything shipped and I am installing it this week. Working through the wiring and got everything working including the switches that are in the trailer already. The SmartArm controller is awesome. I am glad I opted for the wind sensor also, we almost lost an awning a couple of years ago when a storm blew in as we were coming back to the campground. I was holding on to the awning and the wind picked me up like I was in a parachute. We thankfully got it rolled in before any damage was done, but many campers lost their awnings that day. I'll update once I get everything installed and working.

Review from a similar Solera Smart Arm in RV Awnings


I did receive the LED light strip and the wind sensor. in a small UPS package. But I have not received or gotten any word about the awning itself. even though the only info I get says it's all been delivered. wondering about the awning!


Comments
The awning is coming on its own freight truck to you. I will have our customer service team reach out with the details.

Review from a similar Solera Smart Arm in RV Awnings


The product was great. It was a replacement for a 2018 Keystone Cougar standard motorized awning. One thing I had to do differently, because of where the wires came out the wall of the Keystone I had to drill a hole in the arm that mounted the wall. I did not install the wind sensor but the instructions looked easy for that install. I did like having the option for moving it from the remote panel outside that was a wonderful feature. Another nice feature was the dimmable LED porch light so you would not blind your neighbors in campgrounds, big plus. I sold this travel trailer and bought a Class A and I am trying to find a way to convert to this awning I think it is very good upgrade.

I would say the only issue of the whole thing was packaging. The box was falling apart when I received it. I inspected everything and it was luckily all in good condition and not missing. I would have been nice it the box was taped and banded a little bit better. Other than that it is a great product

Review from a similar Solera Smart Arm in RV Awnings


Ordered this awning and the LED light kit in the related items. Awning is nice, operates smooth and quiet, and installed relatively easily. Outside control panel is handy, however, awning fabric includes neither the extra bead to attach the light to, nor the wiring to put the light in the roller bar. Now I have to figure out a custom solution to get this attached and wired up to the controller. This is very frustrating, and turned an otherwise good experience into an annoyance.


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. I reached out to the manufacturer and the light kit is meant to work with a Prep-Flex fabric that we do not currently have on site.

Review from a similar Solera Smart Arm in RV Awnings


Not at all happy with the Hardware and cheep thin metal brackets. It folded the first time a small breeze went over it. The brackets had no strength at all. about 1/4 the durability of the OE Awning. I hope you don't make the same mistake I did. Not up to the task...Look for a better option....

Everyone I talked to was easy to understand and extremely pleasant, which is unusual these days, sadly. Even though the item was damaged in shipping, and no fault of etrailer, they made everything right in a very timely manner, I couldn’t have asked for better customer service. Great people and great company

I bought this awning for my daughter’s trailer after hers was destroyed by the wind. I was particularly concerned if the retract in the wind would work like it was advertised. I can say wholeheartedly that it does. I/she are very happy with that awning. Relatively easy to install. Works as expected. Sorry not photos.

We have no regrets with our purchase and would use trailer again!!

  • Dimension of Awning that Comes with Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning # LC405510
    The width of just the fabric (distance between the arms) of the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning # LC405510 that you referenced is 17 feet 1 inch. It holds the awning 8 feet away from the wall of your RV. The outer arm is 63-1/2 inches, the inner arm is 50 inches, and the pitch arm (arm that controls angle) is 32-5/8 inches.

  • Lippert Solera Awning Rollbar Compatibility with Dometic Awning
    Lippert's roller tubes are not a universal fit so they have not been confirmed to fit on a Dometic awning. I recommend upgrading to a Lippert awning like the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning - 18' Wide - Programmable - White Fade # LC405510. Lippert offers a wider range of replacement parts for their products than Dometic does in the event of an awning being damaged.

  • Does Solera Powered Awning Come with Everything to Replace Damaged Awning
    The Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning # LC405510 that you referenced is an 18 foot awning that comes with everything to install that you'll need. You'll most likely need to replace the wiring you have left so I wouldn't worry about trying to integrate the wiring you have. This is a white fade color that will be white closer to the RV and then fade to a darker color at the end of the awning. For a similar setup that has the colors fade the opposite direction we have the part # LC730510.

  • How to Secure Solera Awning to Prevent Motion of the Trailer
    There are a couple of potential fixes for unwanted motion of your Keystone Cougar 5th wheel when your awning is deployed and catches the wind. One is to simply retract the awning when the weather gets a little gusty. The other is to ensure your trailer's stabilizers like # LC298707 and # UF48-979002 are properly set on a firm surface.
