Replaced Solera Awning Motor for peanuts!

My awning motor was making a lot of noise on the retract and was also painfully slow. Thanks to Kathy Terry who posted on this forum back in November, I ordered a replacement from RockAuto.com for $12.70, paid $7.99 for shipping for a total of $21.48. It was a simple job to replace. The replacement motor does not have the override in case of failure, so I ordered a spare. It takes about the same amount of time to use the override to retract as it does to change out the motor! The best price I could find online for the stock replacement motor #266149 was $142 on Amazon. In case anyone is interested, here is the info on the replacement motor. RockAuto.com, 1994 Chev Lumina drivers side window motor, VDO WL42005. Perfect fit, all metal, durable, and quiet!
