Theres a tag on the front arm and on the roller to identify what you have but that doesn't do you any good if its stuck closed.
But its the only way to know.
Its kinda like your vin number for your awning.

What mobile Tech "worth his salt" does not know the phone number for Dometic tech support? IMO, something rotten here.

Or maybe I am just skeptical of "technicians" who are just jack booted thugs in disguise.

Contact - Dometic

FYI: "Worth his salt" comes from ancient Roman times when troops were paid a salt allowance separate from other pay. It was called "salarium" which is where our word salary comes from.
Worth one's salt

The motor went out in our awning while we were away from home. We managed to get the awning closed and got it back home safely. Hubby called Dometic and they had a tech at our house in 2 days. We were still under warranty and the motor was switched out and we are in business again. I can't say enough about the wonderful customer service from Dometic!!

wow that was great. I called dometic & they said I had to take the unit to a local repair shop, axp 20 miles away. my unit is also in warranty, maybe I should call back. I dont have a 5th wheel to take it there so taking it to the shop will cost a small fortune.
