Replacement Specs 2005 Class C Sunseeker manual awning (Dometic perhaps???)

So the awning on our older 2005 Class C is just about gone. We got numerous pinholes developing and there is a break on the main seal at the roof line.

I was soring it was going to need replacement soon, but all the rain this season, that "thought" is rapidly becoming a fact.

I would like to price some out, but need the specs. We are newbies so not sure if I can just order the canvas and seal, or if it is a module unit with new arms ratchetting roller, and awning arms.

Anybody done this type of replacement on a similar unit that can help a guy out with some information?

The rain let up enough to measure it. It's a 13ft awning and get a look at the model number. The roller says it's a Sunchaser 834EH14.401, and the Awning label says the same thing.

Thanks in advance.

Did an internet search and found this

Your other source would probably be an rv dealer.

Awning fabric is available from many sources as long as you have the measurement of the awning tube. You can pay extra to get one of the name brands or get the same awning material at a greatly reduced price from a different supplier. Keep in mind the material will be less wide then your measurement. It is well within the DIY realm of projects. JMHO
