Hello every one!!
We just were part of the Florida State Rally and got a good look at all the new coaches. The one feature we really like to incorporate in our own Adventurer are the Electric Sun Visors. It looks like they may finally do the trick of blocking the sun at low angles.
Now for the big question... Has any one installed any one of these and how do you get them? Order them from Winnebago or other sources? Maybe there was a thread about those sometime ago but I missed it.
Thanks for any help!!

You could order them from your dealer.

You could order them from Lichtsinn Motors in Forest City and most likely pay less than at your dealer (even with shipping). That's (800) 343-6255 or parts@lichtsinn.com

You could order them direct from Carefree of Colorado. You'll find 'em at http://www.carefreeofcolorado.com/rv...asp?m=01010501 ... on their website, they run from $256 - $289 depending on length. You can get a manual version for about $120 less each.

Thanks guys,
I noticed that Carefree suggest a dealer installation for the power Smartvisors. Has anyone done this him (or her) self?

ELLEN, you would have to find a 12v supply point, maybe on a fuse panel under dash or on fire wall. I have one on my dash in front of steering wheel would run wires from ceiling of dash area, I have a flat wood area, down "A" frame of window to fuse panel where I have spares. The instructions for visors would tell what size and how to mount.
Sounds good think I might look into them at RV-Upgrades, they would be alot easier than reaching up to pull down manual visors while driving.
