Powered Driver / Passenger Sun Visors

Does anybody have a source or installation experience with powered visors? Would like to add them, but I can't find much info on them...

MCD Innovations is one maker. AutoMotionShade is another.
Ours are MCD and came as a factory install.

What I'm really looking for is powered sun visors for the front cockpit to use while driving. Is there a retail outlet for something like this?

Both MCD and AutoMotion have dealers around the country. Do you mean that you want to buy them then install them yourself? Our MCD's have both a sunscreen and full night shade. All are electrically (12 volt) powered.
As far as I know either company will sell them to you. MCD has pictures and stories of those that have installed them themselves.

Yes... That's what I was looking for. I don't think this would be a difficult mod to do yourself, if the equipment was good...

Here is a link to AutoMotion ones for sale on Amazon. I installed a couple of these in my Itasca. The nice thing is you only have to supply power to the shades, there's no switch wiring to run. They work from a wireless remote.

Thanks... I saw these and have saved the info. It only had one review and they said it was a little cheaply made, if I remember right. Have you had any problems with yours? I could leave them battery powered, with wireless remotes, or hardwire them, it they are worth the effort...
