RV Electric Roller Shade

Our motorhome has window shades made by MCD Innovations.  These shades are considered to be “cream of the crop”.  Every window has two shades:  a sun shade that blocks the direct sun but allows light to come through and a night shade that completely blocks all light.  These roller shades can be pulled down to any position and will automatically retract slowly when you release them.

We re-entered New York from the east, this time.  This was a sort of transitional stop for us.  Middletown is in the Hudson River Valley a little south and west of the town of Poughkeepsie.  We parked for two nights at Korn’s Campground.
