MCD 15 channel remote

Has anyone tried changing the shade channel assignments? All shades and limits are working great but I don’t like the channel assignments. I am hoping this is not a big deal. I have called and emailed MCD. MCD(Nicole) said Calvin is the one to talk to but he has not called back in two days.
Any help would be great
thanks.

MCD Shade Changes

Yes, I've changed a channel on the MCD remote. The best thing I did was to change the operation of the door shade. Originally, hitting the ALL NIGHT + UP button raised all the shades in the coach and hitting the ALL NIGHT + Down button lowered all the coach shades.
Since we often walk the dogs just after sunset we would hit the PASS Window + up button to raise the shade on the door to get out to walk the dogs. That also raised the Pass window shade.
I kept the programming so the door shade would raise along with the window shade when I hit the ALL NIGHT + UP button, but not come down when I hit the ALL NIGHT + DOWN button.
When we return to the coach, I just hit the PASS WINDOW + DOWN to lower the door shade. This is also nice when we have company. This may not be a preference for many folks, but it works for us.
Anyway, I went on the MCD web page and downloaded their manual for the shades and controller. In that document there are instructions for pairing the shades to the remote. Good luck

Thanks for the response. I have the MCD instructions can have changed the entry door to stand only control similar to you. What I am trying to do is changes the channel assignments i.e. move entry door from channel 3 to channel 12. In the end I will group all day shades together in series and all night shades in series.

Night shades channels 1-6 and day shades 7-11. Entry door, PS window and driver window separately.

Got the response from MCD and I will have to return all shades to “factory reset” and start from scratch. Unfortunately there is no quick way to change the channels.

Trying to figure out how to do this. Did you remove the shade from the group?
