The ones I have seen can be adjusted by tightening the cords. Winnebago uses spools that can be adjusted by loosening a screw. pulling out slightly, turning the spool to tighten the cord, pushing it back in and tighten the screw.

My friend with a Fleetwood Flair has to either try to pull the cord down enough to loop a turn of cord over the spool or remove the spool and roll a turn or two of cord on the spool and then reinstall the spool on the wall.

However it is done the cord needs to shortened some to provide enough tension to keep the shades in place.

sullydog.....The problem your having is the same problem everyone is having. They're are a couple of things you can do. The day (see through) portion of the shade usually folds up without an issue. The night shade which is thicker tends to lose it's memory and wants to buckle when you get it almost closed.

To help the issue, keep the night shade pushed all the way up when not in use, like when in storage or during the day when camping. This helps the material keep it's memory and stay folded.

Some have sprayed the shade with water and then kept it folded up for a few days until it dries. This helps the material go back to it's original shape. The only down side is that you can stain the shade if they're dusty or dirty.

Hi sullydog &

We've had the same problem. I spent the last 6 years manually folding the darned shades as I raised them.

My solution was or order MCD roller shades & give the old heave-ho to the pleated shades.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Now is a good time to get MCDs. We took advantage of the 30% trade in allowance now going on.

Oops, I misread the original post and I answered a question the OP did not ask. Sorry about that.
