2018 FE 24 - awning issues

Hi. First post. New to RV's.
We have been traveling the states - and so far love the RV and the ability to get up and go.

Recently we lost the lower "cap" on our awning (motor side) somewhere on the highway. And today, the awning motor started making some "rough" noise and seems to be running very slow when opening or closing.

Does anyone know what the part numbers are for these? Thore simply says - go to an authorized dealer. Amazon and eBay have different versions...

We have a warranty (bought used about 4 months ago), but we won't be back home for another 5 weeks. I'd like to get the parts shipped to our next stop.

Any ideas, suggestions, etc...

Don't use the awning for the rest of the trip.
If that motor quits with the awning anywhere but fully retracted, it'll make you howling mad when you destroy it all.

The cap is cosmetic.

When you get the replacement, drill two holes and loosely slip a zip tie through them to secure the cap to the rail.
Below is a link to most of my modifications either accomplished or pending.

Most awnings have a manual retract procedure. Learn yours if you decide to continue using it before you fix it.
