Happy Birthday.

I don't see anything listed for that part number. Can you provide any other model name/number or identifying markings on the awning and maybe upload a snapshot of the part you're looking for?

There are lots of Dometic awning end caps that are available to purchase online but I don't see anything right now that has the part number you posted.

If you don't get any response here on the forum from anybody that knows more about awning parts than I do, you can try contacting Dometic and see if they can help:

Thank you for looking. I will attempt to unroll the awning one more time (hopefully the bracket doesn't break the rest of the way), to see if there are any other tags with numbers on the roller itself. I was told by another person that there are too many digits at the end of this VPN 802GU44.1871B found on awning arm label. I will keep you updated on what I find.

One man saved the broken end cap parts for his obsolete awning, took them to a place with a 3-D printer and they made a duplicate using the measurements of his old one.

I found the Left hand torsion spring with the enddap on it so we purchased it. i'll watch some you tube videos and maybe give it a try at replacing it if it doesn't look to dangerous. If not i'll have to take to the shop. Thanks for all your help.

About a year ago I replaced the canvas on my Dometic sunchaser, on a 2010 Fleetwood Class C, I think it's the same awning you have, and I took off the left cap with the torsion spring. Just be very careful, and do watch a bunch of YouTube videos. Just think about what you're doing and be deliberate and careful, and it's really not that difficult. My cap was riveted on so I had to drill them out and then re rivet it, but I think some of them have screws.

I think I watched about five different videos, and was able to glean everything I needed to know from watching all of them. Also take note that you have to do a certain amount of turns to pretension it. When I took mine off I just counted the turns as I released the tension, and then pretensioned it with the same amount of turns. I also sprayed the heck out of the spring with lithium grease lubricant, but perhaps the new ones come pre-lubricated? I just remember vice grips came in very handy in pre tensioning the spring. And keep your face away from it, in case it lets go, or your hand slips.
