The problem now is, it won't go up at all.
Has anyone had this problem.
Does anyone know where the motor is?
Thanks for any help.
I believe the shade motor is attached to the roller.
If the key is in the ignition and turned on the shade will only lower about 1 foot. This is a safety feature to prevent blocking a driver's field of vision. If the key is turned off then the shade should lower to the dash of to any point between.
On my coach the shade is manufactured by Irvine Shade and Door. Their web site is
