SOLVED !!! Window Shade Not going UP.

I searched here and other places and NO ONE posted an answer - That I found to the problem of why the front electrical windshield rollup goes down, but not up.

In my particular situation, apparently if you turn on the windshield fans (to defog the window for driving) the shade will go down, but not up. The reason for this stupid design escapes me. While driving both directions are necessary for the sun. Why disallowed when the fans are on is absurd.

Just putting this solution out there to assist others. Possibly others may have felt ashamed and did not want to post when they found out, but there is no reason to feel ashamed about discovering a a ridiculously bad design!

That is ridiculous. You must have done a lot of detecting to find that problem/solution.

You probably should email Forest River. They might have a fix. At least they need to be made aware of the problem.

I'm sure it's no different than FR turning off Low Beams when High beam is activated on Headlights! I believe it is a Canadian requirement - Forbid they make US & Canadian production different - always lowest common. NO offense to Canadian members.
