2013 & 2014 GT 351ds Owners - Help

I finally received a quote to get my awning replaced and it seems like a crazy quote.

When I asked FR for the part number for my entire awning assembly they gave me just one number. Come to find out that number is only for the fabric, tube, and motor. I need to find out the part number for the rest which is the mounting hardware (arms, brackets, etc.), and the weather shield cover.

Could someone please look at their awning and provide the correct part numbers?

The only part number I have is 918EH14.001U

The dealer I took it to quoted me $1650 for all the hardware, and 8 hours at 99 bucks an hour for the install. All they have to do is install it as there was zero damage to the coach and the top brackets, wiring, and lower mounts are already there. I can do the same in about 2 hours tops.

I'm going to do it myself if I can find all of the part numbers and a place to order them from.

We are going out camping tomorrow night - if you don't get any answers by then, I'm happy to take a look (its a 2015, but hopefully not much different)

I also know I have the manual for the awning (also in the RV) so I will look in there as well.

Thanks!
Garren

Thanks Garren, I appreciate that. I also left a message with Kevin Stratton at FR to see if he can help.

I just got off the phone with the dealer that provided the quote and they told me that their FR representative said that my coach did not come with a weather shield. Every single 2014 GT I've seen has one.

This isn't going to be easy. Ugh!

4 numbers on tag on vinyl portion;

918EH14.001U
958524633

31799050
9108676178

Not sure which one you need

Cannot lower at this time to see if numbers on arm are the same
Let me know if you need them and I'll move it so I can lower it and check

I looked at every scrap of the 50 pounds of paper I got on mine and found nothing on the awning. The dealer I bought mine from is Madison RV and they are an authorized maintenance center for FR. Its 5 pm here so they are gone today but I'll be glad to call them for you tomorrow if you like. PM me or email me at gspage53@gmail.com.

I called Dometic and that's how I found out I needed three part numbers. They couldn't really help me because they don't know what FR installed in my coach.

Thanks CJ, maybe they included all of the part number in one tag. I'll check with Dometic tomorrow to see if they can find those part numbers. I really appreciate it.

I appreciate your help. Let me see if I get a response from FR with the correct part numbers. Another member also posted new part numbers and those may be it. If you still want to call your dealer that would be great. I can use all the help I can get with this one. I can't believer how hard it's been to get this awning replaced, it's not rocket science here. I want to make sure I get the correct parts because everything is predrilled in our coach and don't want to have to deal with wrong parts. Cheers, AL
