  • The Pioneer Upgrade Kit is a more cost effective way to replace worn out or broken springs (less money and less labor involved).
  • No need to unlock travel/storage locks, unlock spring assembly or search for your pull strap to open awning. Simply start turning the crank to open and close the awning. The rest sets up the same as your original spring loaded awning.
  • No need for travel locks to prevent billowing in transit. The worm gear automatically ensures the roller is locked in place wherever you stop the awning.
  • No need to re-tension your awning canopy on breezy days. The worm gear locks the roller in place and will not slip, always ensuring a taut canopy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great fix I ,like others, had broken springs and could not afford a new awning. I was tired of standing on a ladder and trying to roll up the awning then tying the awning down so it would not come undone while on the highway. This upgrade kit was easy to install. The one spring was a little hard to remove, but other than that it was a snap. You did have to drill three new holes installing the right side but was easy to line up and drill. The left side used the two holes that were already there. The ease of operation is beyond expectation. I wish I had heard of this much sooner. I would highly recommend this to anyone in need of this type of repair. Buy it, you'll be happy you did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade - with exceptions. I purchased this product so that I could stop going up and down a ladder to release the tie down straps. Unfortunatly I have a Dometic awning and this product is for a Carefree. Much to my surprise this product will not fit the arms of the Carefree awning nor will it fit over the awning tube of the Carefree awning. In order to make the modification I had to purchase new vertical arms and modify the roller tube to make the system work on my coach. In both I was successful and the now modified system works perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade Kit Install The aft spring on my 2001 Carefree awning broke and I decided to install the upgrade kit. Never really liked the spring loaded wind/unwind original design, seemed to be glitchy at times, especially the lock/unlock mechanism. The install instructions were pretty thorough on the upgrade. The endcaps were easy to remove (will need square and phillips head screwdrivers). Also large vice grips for unwinding the spring are recommended for leverage when the encap clears the support tube. The new endcap fit was right on. The only hiccup was the new forward endcap, it was designed with three faster holes to the awning tube whereas the original had only two...had to drill three new holes in the tube. The new aft endcap had two holes that fit the original tube holes perfectly. The best part was the wind/unwind when the install was completed........worked like a charm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from pioneer endcap The installation took about 30 min., be careful of the old springs they are very dangerous when they come out. The endcaps installed easily and worked like a charm. It requires a bit of cranking to raise and lower but my 19 foot awning took 2 people before to get it rolled up. This is very easy to install with a bit of help and easy to use by just 1 person. Thumbs up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pioneer End cap Conversion Kit This works great! After years of replacing springs and still having to push the awning up, all I have to do now is crank it. Installation was simple Just be careful of the spring tension (unless iyou are sure it is broken.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awning repaired Install was fast and easy, instructions easy to follow. Needed to drill 2 new screw holes on crank end. old unit only had 2. No more climbing the ladder to roll the awning up. Great buy and well worth the cost.

    Is this compatable with my A&E 8500-9000

    Asked by: Mike
    No. You would have to purchase Pioneer Lite Hardware Arms (which include the crank) to replace your A&E set while reusing the fabric & roller tube if still in good condition.

    Can I use this for my broken Dometic awning Pleasure Way RV (manual crank gear broke).

    Asked by: Rufo
    No, the endcaps will not work on Dometic/A&E hardware arms; the arms have to be replaced by ones fabricated by Carefree of Colorado. The Pioneer Lite arms are recommended as they have the manual crank feature already added to the unit. Please contact our Technical Service Group @ 800.622.6264 if interested in ordering replacement hardware arms by Carefree of Colorado.

    Have awning elite 9000, does it work?

    Asked by: michel
    No, the upgrade kit fits Carefree of Colorado 'Spirit', 'Fiesta', and 'Simplicity' awnings. Other patio awning brands would have to have the hardware arms switched to 'Pioneer Lite' model by Carefree. 'Pioneer Lite' hardware has the manual crank feature installed from the factory.
