binding shade

Any input or help on this would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

I had same issue and it chewed up right side of shade, had the binding fixed and per repairs the cause was the screws that hold the shade up had vibrated loose. Shade was not replaced due to fact I was out of warranty when it happened, so now I have a shade with a slightly ragged edge.

Does any one know about the front shade switch. Mine keeps going down when I shut the switch off. It also won't hardly move when I hit the switch. I hate having to go to forest river and wait for a part.

Finally found the problem on my front shade! Emailed MCD they responded explained the problem and sent me a new motor even though we were out of warranty. Nice to work with a company that stands behind their product, thanks MCD!!!
