I have an 04 DSDP and my awning came unrolled while underway and the arms etc. are demolished. It is the small (48") bedroom awning. I have tried to locate a source to get a replacement to no avail. After 2 1/2 hours on hold to Dometic (A & E Systems) I was told rudely that model is discontinued and there are no replacements available.

Does anyone know of a source for used RV parts such as this?

Try RV Dr. George in Sacramento. When the winds tore up my awning arms they had some new ones that were also A&E obsolete. It is a great place to find replacement parts new & used

Does it have to be an exact replacement? Couldn't a modern version be installed in it's place? Awnings are just brackets, arms, winders and fabric.

Remember, you are looking for a WINDOW awning not a patio awning. You are better off buying the Complete awning tube/fabric and then the arm kit. Just 2 items on complete replacement. Parting out just the parts will probably cost more. You are also looking at a 20 year old awning. The fabric and/or springs may be suspect, since it unrolled in transit. So, buying spring/s and arm kit may be more than a complete new awining. Doug

PS it seems most suppliers are out of stock due to supply issues.

Agree with dougrainer buy the awing unit and fabric not just the parts. Just did the same thing for a slide out awning easy to DIY. Does not have to be exact replacement, Dometic was good to me during pandemic, highly recommend them. $ should not be an issue if you can afford the RV, letting someone else do the labor takes time and may do a bad job, I can do it myself within 2 hours.
