[QUOTE=Old Rv'er;1024199]Basil - we have the ill fated shades you mention in the original post. To date, they have not given us a miniute of trouble. About once a quarter I spray dry silcone lubricant on each gear set, and they continue to work. I like them a lot and will do whatever it takes to keep them working even replacing the motors if necessary. I put them down at night and raise them in the am.
What issues have they had? QUOTE]
Ours never actually failed but so many did that the manufacturer discontinued them. broken strings, hung up or just plain quit as I recall. I was lucky to get MCD shades installed under WRV warranty before MCD didn't get paid and quit doing it. Our coach, then Fivian's, stop.
