RV awning shades, can they be rolled into the awning?

Does anyone know if the RV awning shades, once installed on the awning, can they be rolled up with the awning or do they need to be uninstalled each time you roll up the awning?

Here's the awning shade I am referring to:

The reason I ask is because installing this on the carefree awning is an effort that in order to simplify, I have to remove one of the awning plastic arm top covers in order to slip this shade into the grove. Otherwise, I need to bring some Cirque Du Soleil contortionists with me each I camp to install this shade.

Is the shade longer than the awning is? If so some may hang out the bottom when it's rolled up. Also, it might make the roll too large to roll it all they way in and rest next to the RV.

We have this one. Most of it zips off, leaving about 3ft attached to the awning. That piece rolls up in the awning no problem. It's as easy as zip on, zip off, and I can do it all by myself. lol

PS: I have a brand new zipblocker 19 X 9 for sale if anyone wants it.

Mine works the same way. Zip on and zip off leaving a few feet attached to the awning. No problems. Larger part folds up and stores away easily in its own bag. Very lightweight.
