I can't tell from the picture if the problem is due to telescoping of the shade and it's contacting the side of the frame but if that's it, I found a quick and easy fix to correct shade misalignment that I had with one of the front side shades: https://www.selectblinds.com/tech-ti...er-shades.html

Ours could use some cleaning and lube as well, just wondering what the easiest method is for removing the screw covers.

Ok.... fixed it... Popped out the 4 screw plugs with tip of steak knife. Unscrewed the 4 screws and squirted WD40 SILICONE into the ends on the inside. Now it literally shoots back up when released.

keep in mind that WD 40, a magical liquid, does evaporate. So you probably cleaned up some gunked up dust and such in the roller. Hopefully your repair will work for a long time, but not, you may want to use a lubricant that leaves a waxy residue that will continue to lubricate (I use BoeShield for things like this)

I fixed exactly the same issue by removing the screws holding the screen roller on and throwing the thing in the trash! Then I called MCD and ordered one from them. Two screws, anywhere convenient to put them and snap the shade into the clamps. Done, perfectly operational!!!

WD40 Silicone lube

The WD40 silicone lube is not the same as the original WD40 (Water Displacement 40). The Silicone version should continue to lube without drying out.

I have a 2015 Itasca Cambria 27K and ran into the same issue. You can take out the four screws as the unit is one piece. I ordered a replacement from LichtsinnRV.com. Ask for David Straw and he can fix you up with the replacement. Extremely simple replacement.

I have the same shade but as a pull-up. Pop the covers off the screws and remove the shade. Disassemble the shade and clean it well. Setting the spring tension is easy to figure out if you need to reset it. Simply watch how the shade comes apart and reverse the process. I don't recall using any lube when I did mine. If you do, I recommend CRC Power Lube with PTFE. This is my favorite lube for most things, including the slides rack & pinion systems.
