Phaeton door awning

As I was traveling my door awning extended on its own. It is on a 06 Phaeton. Dometic 48" power awning. I removed it from the coach and found the motor gear shaft that engages and powers the rollup spool had stripped out and will spin inside the roller. Has anyone experienced this this and if so how was it repaired? tiffin service said I should just buy a new awning. I seems a shame to discard the entire awning just because of one coupling when everything else is in good condition and working order.

Dometic does not manufacture that unit, they just put their fabric and labels on it. Parts are still available for it. However, it could be an easy fix without ordering anything from them. There is a small "key" that wears down. See this thread for more details:
