Want to know if Carefree Sunblocker screen will fit in the roller slot of a Dometic WeatherPro awning. Awning is 20 foot long mounted on a 2006 Dutch Star.

It should. Why not contact Carefree and ask this question to be 100% sure.

Thanks.

Sometimes, we may not have tried your senerio or someone who has does not see you post but the manufacturers a re also a good source to be sure on a topic. I am almost positive you should have not problem but cannot guarrantee it.

It will probably fit but the biggest problem I have run into with Carefree or Camping World sunscreens is that they don't hang down very far considering how high the WeatherPro awning is. I ended up having one custom made to get it to drop down as far as I like to provide shade.

Thanks Paul for the response. We were thinking the same regarding how far it would be off the ground.

Although we have only been traveling for about a year we have seen many of these screens so I am surprised I did not get more response.

Thanks for your feedback ----- I believe we will sleep on the matter for awhile.

If you want an awning sunscreen with a longer drop, try Sunpro Manufacturing. Click under the heading called "Awning Drops." They are available in heights of 6, 7, and 8 feet; lengths from 10 to 21 feet; and in various colors. The 7 foot version is just right for the height of our WeatherPro awning and goes to within a few inches of the ground. The edge that slides into the groove in the awning tube has a 1/4" dia. rubber welt sewn in and works fine with the WeatherPro.

The only thing to be careful of is the wind sensor of the WeatherPro should be disabled if you are going to attach a shade and tie it down. This leaves your awning vulnerable to wind damage. We usually only use our shade when we are present and only if there is little threat of wind.

Thanks Paz for taking the time to respond. This was very good information and what I was hoping for when I posted. I knew someone was out there somewhere who had this knowledge.

We are leaving the day after Christmas for warmer weather and very much looking forward to our longest stay in our MH.

kr, glad I was able to help. I did edit my original post. I should have said the wind sensor of the WeatherPro should be disabled.

Enjoy your trip.
