Ron--have you checked on the blinds themselves? On ours, there are small tags with the brand name on the bottom.

Thanks for the response Sarah.... Yes, I did check the blinds but no name that I could find. Guess I'll have to contact Fleetwood.
I have one blind that advances only about a 1/4 in. each time the switch is pressed. Happens both up and down direction. Takes quite a while to advance the blind this way. :(

Ugh, how annoying. The good news is, Fleetwood is very responsive and should be able to provide that info for you. Good luck.

Finally a resolution to my blind problem. First off, the blind/shade installed in the Revolution and I'm assuming the rest of the AC line (we all know what assumptions get us are made by Automotion Shades which are located in Canada. Perusing their web site is worthless or as near worthless as you can get. Absolutely nothing I could find relative to any technical specs, adjustments, etc.
As you may recall, my problem was one of my blinds would only advance about 1/2" with each press of the switch. On the left side of the rollers you will find 2 small knobs with arrows pointing one direction for clockwise and one for counter-clockwise rotation (up/down) You will also note a plus and minus sign relating to the rotation of the small knob. Feeling I didn't have anything to loose I just started turning the knobs relative to the direction I was attempting to extend the travel. This took me probably 1/2 hour or more but finally got the blind to go down and up all the way in each direction. Can I tell you exactly which knob controls which direction? I'm not sure because as I rotated one knob it just didn't seem to corrolate to what I thought it should be affecting.
Bottom line is I finally got mine working, not entirely sure how and also don't understand why it went out of alignment.
If any of you have any type of documentation for Automotion blinds I sure would be interested in a copy.

Hi RonK. I just had Auto Motion Shades installed on Tuesday by Classic Coach Works in Lakeland Fl. They were MCD's largest dealer till last year when they switched. They are a family owned and operated bus and I'm sure they would be happy to help you. Ask for Stephanie. 863-667-3040.

See you at the FMA/ Lazy Days Rally.

Cliff
