Some kind of awful

I need a new motor for my awning. Dometic model 3308957004. Can't seem to find a place to order other than going to the dealer. Took apart the motor and the actuator was fried to the winding. See the pictures of the motor. After reading some other inputs I think the switch is probably the culprit. Just need a reliable source. Thanks.

Other than trying to order it from dometic I'm afraid you only have two choices.
Unless you can find a used one on ebay or from a rv surplus outlet.

Try looking on eBay, I bought the motor and torsion springs for spares a couple of yrs ago for around $175 shipped. Carry them with me all the time.

Here is a link to Dometic Awning service parts.
Maybe you can find it there?

Check with FR and Dometic. There was a recall on some switches that went bad and caused motor to burn up. Maybe be covered on warranty/recall--can't tell without more info.
