Awning Motor dying
OUR Alpine 2003 FDTS40 has an A&E "step 1" awning with the motor mounted outside the drum on the coach front end of it. It runs for about 5 seconds and quits, Cools and repeat. Like a thermal overload working. The motor doesn't seem to have much power either.
A&E states that they have discontinued this model naturally.
The motor is a globe gearhead 409A 625 SN 2321 12VDC.
Anyone know where I can Buy one?
If so, how do you get that end apart to get at the 4 small screws. I have the two screw cap off and the cover over the motor & wires off.
Can the "drum" be replaced with a motorized drum like some of the new awnings using the existing arms and awning etc.????
IF not, any suggestions on what new awning to buy?
