Driver Side Shades

In my 2011 Tiffin Allegro Bus 36QSP,
the driver's side window slants down larger nearer the front....so when the sun shade is lowered, not only is it not lowering enough to cover the window by 10" (nearest the dash) and about 4" on the other end....very annoying. Does anyone have a fix or explanation? Thx.

I'm not 100% certain but I think there are stop switches that are adjustable. On mine they are on the left side as you face the blind. If you go online there is a diagram showing how to do it.

I( removed the bottom of the shade and cut the material on the same angle and then reattached the bottom seam. There was more than enough material to do so

I know exactly what you are talking about. The bottom of the shade should be tapered at the same angle as the window. My solution is that I lower the shade to the back corner and when I remove the pillow in the sham from the bed, it goes on the dash to cover the remaining opening. I have a Magne Shade on the outside of that window and it blocks a lot of light and prevents anyone from seeing inside. If I had known I would have had a solid panel sewn in the Magne Shade when I ordered it, six to eight inches would have solved the problem. May take it and have it done sometime.
