Shade Motors

I did a search on the shade motors, mine are starting to work slowly and have to bump the switch at times for them to move. I also saw a post on the Entgra board that there were a lot of problems with the 2014 shade motors not sure if it applies to the Tiffin Bus or not, if you have replaced your shade motor what which motor did you get?

We had to replace our night shade motor as it had symptoms just like yours. I called Tiffin and bought what they recommended. I watched a tech replace mine and concluded I never could have done it.

Lengthily discussion and links to videos showing motor replacement for front windshield shade motors on A Part of the TiffinRVNetwork - Index page. Evaluating a first time task is always subjective imho.

2014 Phaeton replaced both motors in the windshield shades once after about two years and now they’re failing again going to have them replaced in March

This is one time I am glad to see that there were not a lot of post concerning my post about the window shade motors.

re. "if you have replaced your shade motor what which motor did you get? ".
I ordered mine from tiffin which I was told had received a upgraded version of the original motors. I don't have access to the details of the exact motors they sent me but just gave them my year and VIN and they knew what I needed.
