these screens are not vehicle specific the screen slides into the open slot on your awning

My Lippert awning has a large motor head on one end and a fake "matching" head on the other end of the roll tube. This effectively blocks the open slot in the roll tube. I bought a screen and found out the hard way. I have since purchased slide in clips that will work I believe but they add an extra hassle when installing the screen.

A previous camper had the Carefree awning and it was not blocked but it was a manual awning.

I think all the current LCI awnings have the same slot system for the screen. Mine works fine...just have to stop the roller in a position that allows access to the slot. The screen the OP is looking at only uses the slot once to install the zipper track. Once thatís in place removal is not required to retract the awning.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
