United Shade Roller Shades.Dicor Corporation affiliate United Shade is helping both RV manufacturers and RV dealers as well as the RVer take advantage of the popularity of roller shades with several offerings.

Under the company’s  “Shades of Excellence” theme, the offerings come in three designs, and can be motorized or manual, including:

• Heavy Duty (HD) options for heavy fabrics with a long traverse, available in Day/Night Motorized, Day/Night Slow Up and Night and can be motorized or manual.

• Light Weight (LT) to help shave off unit weight. Lighter than HD with a smaller mounted profile, this design is great for tight spots between valances and windows. It is available in Day/Night Motorized, Single Motorized and manual Slow Up.

• The Classic Series (CS) with an elegant retro look. It uses familiar, residential style adjustments and a no-headrail design that’s perfect for space and weight restrictions. Employs universal wall or ceiling mounting brackets and is manual only.

CWRV Transport LogoIn an effort to expedite delivery of some 30,000 units a year from RV manufacturers to Camping World Inc.’s 90-plus rolling stock stores, CW Chairman and CEO Marcus Lemonis says his Lincolnshire, Ill.-based company has decided to enter the RV transportation business — in a big way.

And although there are still plenty of details to be publicly fleshed out, CWRV Transport – in the planning stages for nine months now – has already done a wave of driver surveys in preparation for launching a billboard campaign this week (Aug. 12-16) around the RV-building center of Elkhart, Ind., to begin recruiting drivers in anticipation of a “game-changing” Sept. 1 launch.

Although there will be an Elkhart office, Lemonis says Camping World is not setting up an entire infrastructure to facilitate its new transport initiative, but instead is “partnering with a number of people to kind of facilitate it.” He declined to discuss further details about how this whole thing might work from an operational standpoint.

SUMMARY OF RECALL:
If the awning installation sequence was not completely followed, the awning motor may unknowingly become damaged. A damaged motor may lead to an unfurling of the awning.

CONSEQUENCE:
If motor damage occurs, it is possible that the awning can unfurl unexpectedly, either while the motorhome is at rest or while in transit, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash.

REMEDY:
The RV manufacturers will notify owners and Dometic staff will replace the affected motors with a design that is not subject to an out-of-sequence installation error. Manufacturers have not yet provided a notification schedule.  Owners are being instructed not to drive their vehicle until repairs can be performed.

Below is a list of RVs subject to recall.
