Try Solera motors, from what I can see, they are part of Lippert/ Dometic.
You might try calling a business in Red Bay , I thinks it’s called the Bunkhouse. They have a lot of used and take off parts. There is also McKinney’s in RB

Dometic awning motor

I may need that info also. We have a 2010 bus 43 QGP with that long awning. It is still working just does not want to retrace from full extension. The aux shade does go down and up.

Takemit off and taks/send it to an electric motor rebuilder. Unless its totally junk they can almost always repair to make it better than new.

If you can find a motor, think mine was a Lippert, and the replacement one was a Lippert/ Kobbler......better motor....spelling on last name might not be correct...

Benalee,

Funny...I am looking for the same motor for my 2008 Allegro Bus. Did you find one? What did you use? Thanks! Nick

Obsolete Motor Dometic

Anyone ever find a replacement motor for their main awning? Obsolete one is 3310556.018U. I have a 2009 43QGP Allegro Bus. . Planning on taking mine out to see if it can be rebuilt. Just looking in case it cant be rebuilt. Motor runs but not strong enough to pull both awnings up. Seems like the motors should be sort of generic unless it is planned obsolescence.☹ Dometic says buy a whole new awning setup. Just replaced the fabric 2 months ago :( Thanks for any advice!

I ended up removing my dometic awning and replacing it with a Girard awning.

Update on this issue at least for my coach. I have not actually fully extended the awning since this repair but here goes. Turned out that my particular issue might have been aggrivated by the motor support. The photos will tell the tale. The end support and tension bracket had worked it's way off the end of the spring rod. This happened when my awning would not retract at all. I tried to exercise it and it stuck all the way out. The support and torsion part was actually visible through the end piece. There is actually only one pop rivet holding the cover on. I thought there were two but once I got the cover off, realized the inner rivet would have been enough. Had an emergency repair call to get the thing put back together and the awning spring rewound. The awning does retract much better now. After seeing and experiencing this problem, I highly suspect that this probem could be contributing to the failure of the motors.

Mine does the same, I help it by pulling the arm down at the same time the switch is press to help it from full extension. Once it gets going, it works just fine.
