Window shade rattling

My apologies if posting incorrectly.
We have a new Thor Aria. Much of the interior noise on the road comes from the window shades rattling around.
Anyone have a "fix" for that?
Thank you!!

One or two inches of self stick velcro, the soft side, on the rattling contacts. Ours went on the shade rail where it would hit the window frame.

Whenever we get ready to get underway, we raise all the shades. Eliminates this problem.

When I pulled out the old trashed day & night shades and the tattered boxes that surrounded the windows I made new boxes of walnut and installed mini blinds. Inside the boxes I put strips of carpet on the bottom and sides. The blinds rest on the bottom strips which reduces most of side to side motion, there's nothing hard to bang against on the sides.

In our lasts coach, the shades made it sound like the wall was falling out. I found that kitchen sponges (4x3 square) wedged in between shade and frame did wonders.

And we never are without a sponge!

With the shades up, we put some blocks of soft spongy packaging foam and push it between the shades and each window. It only takes one per window.
