Convert Your Windows to Power Operation With Full Remote Control:

multi-channel remote control + ALL

Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom, and they have been used for generations to provide ventilation. While the old-fashioned crank works fine, a universal power window kit allows you to open and close windows with the push of a button.

Here is a link to our category in our shopping cart (opens in a new tab).

If you'd like to upgrade any of your windows, converting to power operation is straightforward. Please note: these are not meant for automotive products, but can be used in RV's and travel trailers.

Here is a short video showing a single-hung window with our "sliders" on either side:

How Do Universal Power Windows Work (manual to power)?

12v motors for awning windowsWindow conversion kits replace the hand crank with an electric motor. A slim low-voltage DC motor in a housing mounts inside the window frame, and it has a chain that locks into a rigid bar that pushes the window open.

We have full remote control capabilities with our multi-channel remotes, but we also have manual units if you want to use your own switch gear. We also have wired switches if you don't want a remote control style.

These motors use 12 volts DC and therefore they do not have any shock hazard. You can install these yourself, perfect for DIY (Do It Yourself).

Benefits of a Power Window Conversion Kit Motor:

Why add manual to power functionality? There are good reasons to upgrade your operation:

- Convenience - They remove the need to get up and crank the handle numerous times.

- Ease of use - Electric operation allows almost effortless opening and closing.

- Speed - Open and close faster than cranking by hand.

- Accessibility - Power controls place operation within easy reach. Helpful for the disabled or elderly.

- Comfort - Keep fresh air flowing on hot days without repeated cranking. Close quickly when it rains.

- Value - Power features can increase property value for homeowners.

Things to Consider When Ordering a Conversion Kit:

If you're planning a conversion, keep these factors in mind:

- Cost - Expect to pay $250 or more per window for quality DIY kits.

- Skill level - You'll need to be able to mount the housing yourself with the supplied brackets (very easy)

- Window condition - Make sure awning frames and hinges are in good shape before motorizing.

- Power needs - We provide 12 volt power supplies that convert AC 120 volts to 12 volts DC. You can also use 12 volt batteries.

- Weight capacity - Power kits come rated for different window sizes and weights. Choose adequate capacity for your windows.

- Features - Consider options like wireless remote control, programmable opening widths, and automatic rain sensing.

How to Add Power Window Conversion Kits:

Here is an overview of the installation process:

1. Remove the existing crank mechanism from the window.

2. Mount the new power hardware housing according to the manufacturer's instructions.

3. If you have a door nearby, make sure it has full swing opening capacity.

4. Configure the remote control units according to our instructions (very easy). If you are using our wired switches, please connect them.

5. Use 16 gauge wire anywhere you run the 12 volts DC. Standard 16 gauge lamp wire is a good choice because it comes in different colors (it blends well).

6. Connect the motor wiring to the provided power supply.

7. If you are using our adjustable stroke units, please choose your opening stroke by adjusting the screwdriver switch at one end (adjustments are 4", 8", 10", 12").

8. Test operation and enjoy your new power windows!

Almost any window can be converted to power operation with a little mechanical skill. For home use, 120V AC kits just plug into a nearby outlet. For RV vehicles or cars, 12V DC kits wire directly to the battery and power system.

If you only need to shop for a part replacement, we have those too. This would include OEM replacement parts, and if you need extra brackets, we can provide those free of charge.
