My Genesis TH has a 20ft awning and light strip in the roller.
Awning is ripped. Need a new one.

So do I need any special order that deals with the light strip?

Or just order the right size and whatever color i want.

I want heavy duty fabric that won't come apart.

I have the Carefree electric awning.

Thanks in advance.

Yes you must order the exact replacement because the wiring for the light strip and the electric motor are sewn into the edge of the fabric.

Are you sure about that? I've never heard of anyone running the wire in the awning fabric. All that I have seen runs the wiring up one of the arms.

We got our awning fabric for our 20' awning from ShadePro.net. Excellent product. About $200 for the heavy duty vinyl. But I didn't see anything on their website about ones with wiring.

I've always wondered where the wiring is for our motor and lights. I've always assumed it was in the arms. I'll take a closer look next time we're out and see if there's any signs of ours being in the fabric. I wouldn't put money on it though.

I can't attest to the lights but the motor wiring on mine (lights are at the trailer,not the tube) runs up the arm at the front, motor is inside tube, rear arm has the spring. The lights I've seen on the tube are in one of the tube grooves, so wiring should be in the arm/tube like the motor. If they were in the fabric they'd roll up every time and would think not last too long.
