Girard awning cup wind sensor replacement?

Anyone know where I can get the 3 cup plastic wind sensor for the awning on my 07 Beaver Marquis? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Safe travels all

What I used was those yellow egg container bought at CW. You just cut them and they do the job.

Contact Girard direct via the web, or do a search on the web of RV supply houses. All you need is the part number to insure getting an exact replacement.
If you do not have a Girard manual for your awing, you can get that on line also.

This is the one I just bought through Rainman for $13.50.
I checked the inside diameter of the new wind sensor hole with a drill bit. I had to back the set screw out and re-drill the hole to fit the existing Girard shaft. I believe I had to go up 2 sizes in bits. It was easy to drill the plastic. I put the set screw back into the new sensor, pushed it down on the shaft and it fit snug. I tightened the set screw and "Voila"....sensor fixed. Wind cups spun nice and free. The cups aren't white, they are black, but that doesn't bother me at all!

Here is the link.
