Expert Answers about RV Awnings


  • How to Determine Correct Slide Out Awning for Trailer
  • You do need 6 inches of clearance from the edges of your slide box in order to fit a Solera awning. To determine the correct slide-out awing you simply need to measure from flange to flange and the fabric will need to extend at least 2-1/2 inches beyond that measurement. For example, if you measured 149 inches from flange to flange you would need the Solera 13' Slider (Slide-Topper) # LCV000165061 (Black) or # LCV000163299 (White). The assembly will only extend a few inches past the...

  • Why Do the Solera RV Slide-Out Awnings Come with Two Piece Brackets
  • The Solera RV Slide-Out Awnings like part # LCV000168112 come with different brackets now, the Solera Slide Topper Access Kit part # LC795354 that you mentioned.

If you prefer the old style bracket, we still have...

  • I was able to talk to my tech contact over at Lippert about the installation of the Solera Smart Arm 12V Power RV Awning - 16' Wide - Programmable - Black Fade # LC517486 and you will need at minimum a 2-1/2" wide surface (stud under the outer shell) to safely mount this kit on your RV or Trailer; it is preferred that you have at least 3" to give yourself some space on each side but the 2-1/2" dimension will work when installed carefully.

For a similar setup that has the colors fade the opposite direction we have the part # LC730510.
