Power front sunshade?

So my front sunshade was out of adjustment when we bought the MH. I did some research and found the reset procedure for the key on/off settings. It was doing great till we drove it. The shade would come out of adjustment. I looked up and seen it down about 3”. I rest it again and it was good for the weekend. Then on the trip home it did the same thing. I have figured it to be from the bouncing of the MH which is making the shade drop a bit on every bump. So I stopped adjusting it but it still bothers me.
Has anyone come up with a fix for this?

Contact Forest River.

There was a recall on power shades dropping while driving down the road. Maybe your shade has a similar problem & fix.
