Solera 18V awning dimensions

Battery-Powered Awning

Solera 18V internal awning battery

The Solera 18V Power awning provides shelter from the sun and inclement weather. A battery-charged motor conveniently extends and retracts the awning with the flip of a switch. The beauty of this awning is that you get a powered unit without the hassle of having to wire it to your RV's power supply. This also means that you don't have to deal with the added expense of paying a professional to install it. The battery pack comes inside the awning arm, so there's no wiring to connect internally. Everything comes ready to go.


Solera 18V battery pack

The rechargeable battery lets you deploy the awning 22 to 25 times between charges. A 110V charge kit is included. This AC adapter plugs into any 110V wall socket and connects to the battery pack built into the arm. There is no need to remove the battery pack from the arm to charge. A manual override allows you to extend and retract the awning using a power drill (not included) if the battery runs out of juice.


Durable Vinyl Fabric

Black 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 18V awning manual pitch adjustment


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!


Simple Installation

Solera 18V awning installation

An awning rail (LC715217- 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. To complete installation, just use the included self-tapping screws to secure the arms to the wall-mounted bracket. Because this awning is powered by the self-contained, rechargeable battery, no wiring is required.

This battery-powered awning attaches to your RV to provide shelter from the sun and rain. It extends and retracts with the flip of a switch. Rain dump feature releases pooled water automatically. Easy installation - no need to wire into your RV.

This awning has been great. This awning was part of our "RV Renovation" project. It was a fantastic upgrade. It deploys and retracts without any issues. You can be set up in a minute without any problems. This unit is battery powered so there were no installation issues or wiring required which made it simple.

We do a lot of dry camping, and the battery capacity has not been an issue for us even when we have had to deploy and retract it multiple times during a trip.

Love this awning!!! Sooo easy to put out and roll back up!

Review from a similar Solera 18V Power in RV Awnings


Well, Our Motorhome "Patches" manual 18' awning had outlived its life having performed admirably since 2003. Sadly it had become so road worn & tattered, we were ashamed to get out the gear & gumption to roll it out. Just too ruff looking for public viewing. Not counting the pain it was to deploy. we finally decided to replace it and found this great deal on etrailer for Solera 18'cordless power awning. Cordless. Power. One finger. Built in rain dump. No more trying to hook that little bitty loop 10' in air with a 4' rod looking into the sun & with Solera's automatic rain dump, no more rushing back from hiking or, fishing to roll that rascal in. Can you say, Bliss? Now the first one got a little jammed up in shipping & had to go back But, as soon as the folks at etrailer got confirmation it was returning, (the same day) they got another on out to me. (Ms. Ashley) And it arrived in vert short order. I cannot say enough good things about the folks at etrailer.( Ms. Ashley, Ms. Helen, Bro. Alex) Every single person I talked to was Professional, Polite, & Knew their stuff. Just like All of America used to be. But I digress, the Solera 18v Power Awning was fairly easy install with help from my Son. And guess what? No hunting for a power source! Toughest thing really was getting the old one down & disposing of it. The instructions were easy for a Man to understand & follow, (lotsa Pictures) & a really good hardware kit. I could not be happier! We had it installed and working in very short order taking plenty breaks. No more shame of ratty awning! No more aching back from jumping up & down reaching! No more sun blindness! Did I Say Bliss yet? So, if you're in the market for a new power awning, and you Don't want to spend a ton of money, do a lot of wire chasing, or fight with herd of disgruntled employees, and generally have a crappy day, Do yourself a favor and give these folks a call, or, email, or carrier pigeon, Just give them a chance. This is a great company selling a great product, And they are both MADE IN AMERICA! BTW, The handsome fellow on the roof is not me, He's my oldest son.

The awning itself works fair. The battery system totally sucks and has never worked properly and still doesn’t today. If I had my choice I would never buy this awning again. Product support was poor to say the least!

Review from a similar Solera 18V Power in RV Awnings


Jan. 3-2020
What a great company and
staff. Thanks to hard the hard work you performed in my behalf.
I had purchased a Solera 18 volt-20 ft awning package and had it shipped to Camping World in Minnesota.
Somewhere along the way the 20 ft awning escaped from the delivery truck.
I won't mention who the freight shipper is, but the awning is still on the loose.
After many calls to the freight shipper and etrailer the staff decided to send me another awning to help me get on the road for an upcoming trip with my RV.
Otherwise it would have ruined my trip.
Thanks to everyone and I will continue to be a loyal purchaser of the many fine products the company sells.

Hats off and a big salute!!!
Thanks Dino

P.S. I hope to post pictures after the awning has been installed.
Hopefully it will be found and returned to E-Trailer


Comments
Its been a year since we had camping world install the Solara 20 ft awning. Its is beautiful and has held up well. this is the 18 volt model. I am very pleased with it, plus all the help from etrailer who made it all possible, oh yeah, plus the money we spent. :-. Thanks to etrailer.
