That's got to be a warning of some sort...
Have you tried to lower them, and had someone gently give a light pull on them to help them get moving?

Try starting up the coach and shifting it into gear and then back to park. You may have an interlock that is sticking.

When mine did that I reasoned that the beep meant it was stuck in programming mode. Try pushing the programming control button a time or two. Youíll probably have to reprogram from start but itís not hard. It worked for me, anyway.

The shade has a controller board under the dash that prevents the shade from dropping while the engine is running. On my RV my shade failed and would not go either direction, but did not beep. I checked the switch with a meter, and it worked. I had to call the shade folks and order a new control board. I replaced it and that solved the problem. BTW the board is way under the dash, a bitch to reach.

On mine it is on the end of a pigtail tucked up on one end of the shade. Itís just a button on the end of a couple of wires. Of course, your shade and wiring may be different from mine so no promises.

Same with mine. It hangs down from the left end of the roller.

Mine has two allen screws that set the top and bottom stop points.
