Electrical Windshield shade

2006 Dolphin. The electical shade was ruff going down - sticking so I returned it to the up position. Now I push the switch down or up nothing happens. I do not have the OEM manual on the shade. I am sure there is a fuse but were? Any ideas?

I noticed that a number of the front accessorie fuses are located in the outside forward basement compartment/driver side. Same compartment as the leveling system tank and controls as well as the quick connect for the air line for filling tires.

Remove the small panel on the top of dash/IP. I know some of the dash accessories are fused there.

I had a similar problem and it turned out that the switch was bad. They definitely are not built to "mil-spec". There is a reference on this web site regarding a company who builds many of the electrical assemblies and switches/lamps for NRV. Unfortunately, I am on the road at the moment and don't have their catalog with me.

Update on my electric shade

Thanks for all your replies. Below is more info.

I found that the swutch was bad. Changed the switch. Now the map light and electric shade do not work. The map light switch and the shade switch independant switches. There is a red and black two wire devise in the wire harness. See pictures. What is this. Is this a fuse. I still have not found any fuses for the map light or the electric shade.

I found a fuse (10 Amp) in the fuse panel on the dash. I found out that the red lens two wire device is a light. The light illuminates whaen the shade switch is placed in the up or down position. When the switch is centered the light is off. Thje map light is working but the shade is not. Is it safe to say that the shade motor is bad?
