MCD Shade Adjustments
Had to make some adjustments to the MCS shades in my Winnebago. Jim Grich, Tech Support of MCD sent me this:
On your 2011 Winnebago Aspect 30c, you should have adjuster thumb wheels, one on either side of the each shade roller. They may both be black or one might be black and one gray. One knob is for the spring tension (all Black knob) and the other (either gray or black with white markings on it) is for the upper stop point adjustment.
You can put the roller tube back together by loosening up the allen screw on the "L" bracket located on the top of the long upper track. When the screw is loosened, you can then pull the entire bracket out of the top track. The adjustment thumb wheels are part of the "L" bracket and will come off with it. Line up the tabs sticking out of the roller tubes with the thumbwheel adjusters and slide the "L" bracket back into the upper track and snug up the allen screw on the top. If there is no tension, adjust the black knobs ONLY by turning them clockwise when looking at that end of the bracket/roller tube. That will tighten the spring inside the roller. Depending on the size of the shade, you may have to turn the adjuster 10-14 turns to get tension on the shade, allowing it to come up. When testing the shade, you will need someone to hold the shade at both ends near the "L" brackets. If you hold the shade in the middle of the top track, the shade will not operate properly and it will bind.
If it stops too far down or stops into the upper bracket, use the gray wheel (or black with white markings) to turn the shade in the direction you want it to go. If it is too high, turn the knob so you are making the material roll off the shade. If it is too low, turn the adjuster so the shade material is winding onto the roller. In order to see the shade actually move, you must have it against the stop point, whether it is low or high. If the shade does not move when turning the adjuster, make small adjustments (1/2 turns) and then try the shade. DO NOT turn the gray (or black wheel with white markings) too many turns or the stop nut inside the tube could fall off into the tube if it is turned in the wrong direction. It take quite a few turns to do that, but several folks have done just that!
