LA36 Night Shade

I have a 2014 Allegro LA36 Open Road with a night shade problem. I have to push the up/down switch several times to get the shade moving. Sometimes it stops after a few inches and I have to push the switch several times to get it moving again. I have replaced the switch and it did not solve the problem. any suggestions? How do I get access to the shade motor to check electrical connections etc? I am worried the shade will get stuck in the down position some day while on a camping trip. that would be a real pain in the ***.

If it is an Automotion shade the whole shade assembly has to be removed to get to the motor which is inside the roller. The wiring on my 2013 35QBA goes up behind the plastic trim on the drivers side windshield post. I would think that the wiring on the 36LA would be there also.

If it is an Automotion shade the motors are still available from Tiffin parts. I think in the $80 dollar range.

Had the same problem and the wire that does run up the drivers side trim had a screw in the center cutting one strand of the wire. Sometimes it would make connection through the screw and sometimes not.
