Is the motor you are asking about the windshield wiper motor, or the windshield fan motor, or windshield shade motor...?

Can yours be repaired? Do you know what exactly is wrong with the motor? I Googled "care free powervision" and only found references to Hunter Powerview". Could this be what you are asking about?

Sorry I couldnít find the edit button to clarify that itís the windshield shade motor. Itís a super small motor and it has no markings on it. Iíll take a pic and post it maybe someone can identify it.

702Sandman,

Google "RV roller shade motors" and you'll find a number of them on Amazon and several replacement DIY videos on "YouTube"

"Automotion" are the windshield shades that came with my 2012 Discovery and I havn't had to replace one......yet. Several other owners have, but Automotion will only refer you to Fleetwood for a replacement motor at an inflated cost. Maybe "Care Free" might sell to the consumer...worth a call.

The aftermarket motors work fine though they may need a bit of tweaking when installed from what I have read. Examine the roller motor carefully for specs, along with the length and diameter and match it up to an aftermarket product if you can't get the OEM replacement.

Did you contact Carefree of Colorado about a replacement motor? In your picture, it looks like a black wire is disconnected. any chance that is the problem?
