Awning motor replacement
 
Does anyone have a lead to purchase a replacement drive motor for a Dometic 9100 series black right hand mount power awning?

Searched the web and no luck....sold out or backorder seems to be the norm right now ...

Found a conversion kit to go from electric back to manual operation ....sounds interesting at this point !

Perhaps even if only temporarily, until motors become available. With demand for RVs skyrocketing and parts production being affected by COVID, it might be awhile.

Might try this used RV parts:

There are others also. Just google "Used RV Parts".

Although I'd prefer new vs used for a motor, but there may be no choice.

I'm not a fan of these motors. I think we are on our fourth one in 9 years, maybe five. I just keep a spare now, and I buy used when I can. Haven't noticed a longevity difference between new and used. I hit the local RV salvage yards first.
