Roll up shade question

We have a 2017 Baystar 3401. The blackout shade that covers the entry door quit working. It seems like the inner spring broke and wont retract.
Has anyone replaced the same shade with a non-Newmar part?

Have you tried removing shade from bracket and turning the little tensioner on the end?

If its a Magnashade, likely it is, go to their website or call them. They handle it direct or they have a parts reseller.

I have discovered the problem. Firstly, I called Newmar parts and the replacement shade takes 8 weeks and cost is $152.00. The maker of the shade is AutoMotion out of Ontario, Canada. I removed the shade and found a broken plastic tab on the tensioner side of the roller. (See photo)
I sent an email to AutoMotion to see if they would just sell the roller as the shade and bracket are fine. Awaiting a response. Click image for larger version

I had the same thing happen on one of my shades... I was trying to adjust it, it felt real "scratchy", so I took it off the mount.. I found a broken plastic tab like yours...

I took it to a place nearby, Temecula Valley RV, who AutoMotion told me was an AutoMotion dealer.

I gave them the shade, they charged about $100, and I got it back fixed and properly adjusted. I just remounted it and it's worked well since..

So I know they sell the replacement parts, just unsure if they sell to non-dealers...

Good luck with your fix...

Thanks, Greg from Temecula RV sold me the spring mechanism for $39+shipping.

Glad it worked out for you.....

The people at Temecula Valley RV are actually pretty good people to work with..

Their labor rate isn't cheap, but competitive, and they do a good job of getting jobs done with a reasonable amount of labor time.

They often get a bad rap, because it takes a while to get in for an appointment, and you often have to leave the coach a few weeks (or more if they have to order parts)...

But they are that busy, and that busy for a reason... They are pretty good (so far for me) at what they do...
