Quick question to the most polished, helpful, people that I know, that have had the same problem that I have encountered.
I've got a Dometic power awning on the TT. For what ever reason that there is the motor has quit working. It was in the out position and I couldn't get it back in. DW and I watched several videos with this problem, and I did do as the instructions called for removing (2) screws, and rolling the awning back in. Only problem now is that the screw holes don't line up and I can't get the screws back in, and must move it by Saturday.
I called the original dealer for this trailer and was quoted $500 for the motor, along with the statement, almost like a badge of honor, "...we replace about 75 motors a year.."
Good grief!!! That many motors without a recall? I was quoted over $100 cheaper at two other dealers, and that is what I most likely do is order from a different dealer than the original dealer.
Worse, I can't seem to find the motor on the Dometic website. The MFG# is 916FT19.500U and the MFG/PNC 958569602.
Any body else that has had this problem with this particular motor? What did you do to rectify it, besides strapping it up with either velcro strap or zip ties?
Much thanks and any help is very much appreciated.
