ELKHART, Ind.—Dometic will feature the all new Dometic 9200 Awning at RVIA in booth No. 157 at the National RV Trade Show in Louisville from Nov. 27-30.
The Dometic 9200 Series Power Awning is designed to be quick and easy to install and has a one-touch operation. The awning features the all new WhisperDrive Motor.
The 9200 Series uses a patented Knee Action Design that flexes in moderate winds. There is also a manual Rain Shed position that prevents rainwater from pooling on the awning. For low sun angles, a manual pitch adjustment allows either end of the awning to be lowered and locked in place.
The new WhisperDrive provides an aerodynamic footprint, which is 50 percent more streamlined than the competition, creating a cleaner appearance on the coach. It is also designed to be fastest and quietest motor in the industry, according to a press release.
