Follow up on the Dometic awning recall. Just got the new motor installed on my Dometic 9100E awning. Dometic sent the motor to a mobile repair shop nearby and in less than a week from the time I called Dometic and gave them my unit information, the installation is complete. Only took 30 minutes. The difference I saw between the one that was taken off and the new one, was the one that was recalled had a plastic wheel on the end of the shaft and the new one had a aluminum wheel at the end of the shaft. Picture of the recalled motor attached.
I have read that some people have mentioned that their awning extended and retracted a little slower after the new motor was installed. Just the opposite for mine, it was very slow before the new motor was installed, it now retracts and extends somewhat faster, much like my previous Sabre/Dometic awning. Very pleased with Dometic's response.
