Pioneer Endcap Upgrade Kit - Polar White

Catalog Item # 54527

Convert your existing spring loaded Carefree Spirit, Fiesta or Simplicity awning to simple manual crank operation.

The Pioneer Endcap upgrade Kit and Telescoping Crank Handle will replace your existing springs at a fraction of the price of new springs, while making your awning much easier to operate. There is no need to ever fuss with travel locks, spring locks or pull straps again. Gain complete control of your awning at all times by not having to fight spring tension while opening or closing your awning. Endcaps are available in white or black finish to match any awning arm color. Crank handle sold separately.

Features:

  • The Pioneer Upgrade Kit is a more cost effective way to replace worn out or broken springs (less money and less labor involved).
  • Eliminates 3 major steps in the awning setup process. 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.
  • Telescoping crank handle (sold separately) for easy storage.
  • Simple installation.

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.

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.
