Switching motor from one side to the other.
« on: July 27, 2009, 11:39:26 AM »



Good Afternoon,

I have a customer who wants their motor switched from left to right side, been searching for some directions on this. Does anyone have a suggestion or done it before. Is there any repercussions to switching the motor? Any help will be appreciated.

We had to do it a few times its easy. First thing is to take the awning down if its mounted. Once its down remove the motor by taking out the 2 screws (as shown in picture)  the motor should pull right out. Take off the Crank Loop because it will be facing up when you insert the motor in the other side.
On the other side pull the tube to remove cap take off the cap and put it on the motor side.
Replace motor, insert screws, put crank loop back on....Done :]

Bill,

Worked just like you said, not a problem, pictures are very helpful,- thanks for your tutoring!!

We are having problems with Sunsetters lock nuts, have you experienced that? they seem to seize up after a few turns and wont come off or go rest way on.

Thanks again!

The lock nuts for the roof brackets strip all the time. We spray the bolt and nut with wd-40 before we tighten them...works great...
