Brian, I feel just the opposite. I now wish I had stayed with the curtains or manual shades. My old Winnie was so simple: no shades, no levelers, no slides, etc. The more gadgets they stick on these units, the more they seem to break.

If dropped voltage (from disconnecting the house battery) was causing the loss of programming; it is definitely a bad design choice by Forest River. Hitting the battery disconnect button would have instantly killed the shade's programming. The shades should have been powered by the chassis battery.

Good point, Ron, but the problem has never occurred when I have used the battery disconnect, but not everything is disconnected by the switch, which is why there is a drain even when using it. This is the first time I have actually physically disconnected the battery, except when I had them replaced a few years ago.
