Dometic 9100 Power Awning - Gears Slipping

Hi All,

Wondered if anyone has had to replace/jimmy rig their main Dometic 9100. When pulling the awning in there appears to be a bad spot on the gears. The motor is working but the awning will not retract and it sounds like stripped gears. In certain spots it will work with a little help - but certainly not right.

Looking up the parts - it seems like $300 bucks is very expensive for a $25 auto window motor - any tricks or things like that that can be done?

Haven't pulled the motor - manufacture date is 4/23/2013 so not in the recall group. Can take a pic this evening.
