RV Awning Eclipse

12 Volt Carefree Eclipse

Eclipse is the industry’s 1st 12V power awning that features instant pitch adjustments!

Push and hold the button to extend the Eclipse to partial or full 8′ extension in just seconds. As the billow-proof worm-gear motor unrolls the canopy, the rafter arms glide up the vertical track on the side of the coach to deploy a stable, truss-like, overhead support.

Push and hold the button to retract and the Eclipse will roll up tight against the coach. That’s it! There’s nothing to lock or latch. Carefree’s exclusive worm-gear drive motor locks the roller for travel and provides the greatest assurance of absolute protection against billowing.

Buy a complete Eclipse or upgrade your existing Carefree or A&E roller assembly with a 12V Eclipse Arm Set!
