Removing Valances or Slow-Rise Roller Day / Night shades

We have a 2017 Cedar Creek with Irvine Slow Rise Roller day / night shades.
The day shade won't retract. Trying to figure out the best way to get to the shade; Drop the valance or unclip and drop the shade. This looks like the clip used as depicted on their website. I can see two angle brackets holding the valance to the window frame. # 2 Square head bit I believe>>
Can't tell how to unclip the 3 holders. See attached photo.
I have contacted Irvine on Facebook and phone. Waiting to hear back. I assume either tension wasn't set, something came apart internally or spring/mechanism broke.

Update On Slow Roller Shade

Attached is picture of actual bracket. Used long flat head screw driver to unclip shade from valance. Now that it's down I see there are only one screw at the each clip holding the valance to the bracket. Would be easier to take screws off first the unclip. Will take valance down so re-installation is easier.
Took shade apart and sent pictures to Irvine Shade. Spoke to them this morning and they are shipping both the long tension spring mechanism and the Stop mechanism.

On the right side of the shade will be the tensioner. I think you turn the wheel toward you to add tension. I had to adjust a couple of mine. Either went up to fast or not at all.

Yeah tried that. The night shade worked fine. The tension side wouldn't hold. The smaller stop side appears to be the problem. Compared both to the working shade and only saw problem on that side.

FYI, the blinds come out by pulling toward you then dropping the back side down. Getting them back up with the valance on can be nearly impossible depending on the height and depth of valance.

Yeah, got them down by releasing the clips at the window side with flat screwdriver.
Planned on installing first remove the valance now that I see how it's installed.

I just did this today. One of the two flat brackets broke holding the shade behind the couch on our last trip. I ordered 1/2 dozen through a local RV dealer so I could add an extra and have a few spares in case others failed. After getting the shade down, adding a middle bracket and replacing the broken one, I could not for the life of me get the shade clipped into all three. I wrestled with it yesterday for nearly an hour. I went back out this morning and removed the brackets then the valance (two top screws and two side "L" brackets, took it outside, flipped it upside down and remounted the brackets to the top of the valance. It was then very easy to clip the shade into all three brackets, flip it over and remount the whole thing back inside. I added a couple of extra top screws for the valance for good measure.

Hope this saves someone a little frustration and effort when this happens to them.
