Power sun screen

The power sun screen on the front windshield of my 2013 Berkshire 390FL will no longer lower, it will only raise. I have repeatedly tried pressing the button near the end of the roller up top, but nothing helps. My night shade previously did the same thing and someone at the campground pressed those buttons in some mysterious manner and it resumed normal function and has worked ever since. Has anyone had this same issue and knows a simple fix?

I know these front screens have interlocks so they cant be powered down while driving. You might try shifting out and back into park or be sure the key is not in the run position.
My parents have a 2012 class A Winnebago something(Not the Winnebago line) and I remember they had a similar issue but(sorry) don't remember the answer, next time I talk to them Ill ask.

Thanks for the response. Actually my Berkshire does allow the sun shade to be lowered while in transit. I don't know if it would come all the way down but I have lowered it part way to use like a sun visor in a car. The opaque night shade IS locked out when the engine is running or the transmission is in gear. Not sure which is the limiter.

Yes, should be able to lower the shade part way down with engine running to act as a sun visor. That little black button (usually up at the left corner of the roller) is the programmer button for the up and down travel (in conjunction with the up/down switch on the instrument panel or where ever it is located) and the programming is spelled out in the owners manual you should have received. If you do not have the owners manual go to the "MCD innovations" web site and I think it is viewable. I don't know the procedure offhand. Of course this is predicated upon your shade being made by MCD (think all FR units are)

This may not be the exact model but if it is an MCD this will show how to program the shade. Just scroll through the document to get to the windshield shades.
