Passenger Side Power Visor

I need to order a new Carefree of CO Power Visor for my 2004 Dolphin. My moho is about an hour away from my present location, so I can't just run out and look at it. I'm hoping someone on here might know the length of the passenger side visor and whether the wiring comes out the right side or the left side of the visor. Thanks in advance!

I finally got over to the storage yard to measure the sun visors, and they are 25" I believe that the originals were Carefree of Colorado PowerVisor II, which is apparently a discontinued model. In fact, I don't see that C of C makes a front visor less than 30" wide these days, which simply won't fit as the TV cabinet gets in the way.

Has anyone managed to find a power visor that will fit in the Dolphin? Both passenger and driver's side seemed to be the same size. I would even settle for a manual roll-up model, but it needs to have the metal scissor arms to keep it from slapping the windshield when going down the road.

You can find used ones at the junk yards. There are 2 RV junk yards in the midwest you can research. Google is your friend on this. This company may have some: http://www.nwrvsupply.com. Might also contact this guy: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RV-Power-Vi...QAAOSw701f82xI

Thanks for the response, though it's a little funny really as I LIVE on Google. I tried a couple of RV salvage yards already and got nowhere, but I'll give those folks a try.

Thanks Richard. Great information! I may have located a manual Automotion shade. I just need to double check my measurements before ordering.

If your original shade has a failed motor, or you want to power that manual replacement, the swap is pretty easy. I did both of my automotion shades several years ago.Automotion Power Shade Rebuild Using RollerTrol Tubular Motor.pdf

Thanks for that information. I had seen those kits and wondered if it was possible to convert a manual visor to power. I scored a new Automotion Flex-Visor on E-Bay for $60, so I'll consider converting it to a powered unit if DW doesn't like the manual setup. Switches and wiring are already there, but passenger's visor was missing when I bought the moho.

I thought about doing that too, but since my driver's visor is good I think I might just get a third manual visor to go under the TV and possibly another for the side window on the driver's side for those times when the sun is just off to the side of the visor. Hard to go wrong at $60 for an Automotion shade.
