Window shade squeak

We have a 2017/18 AI Ext Lounge with an irritatingly high pitched squeaking window shade. Sounds like a thousand crazed canaries on speed! The dealer has been unable to correct the problem. Our fix is to jam layers of wadded paper towels between the window/day shade/privacy shades. Help!

I cut pieces of foam to go in between the shades. It has just become routine to remove at night and replace upon leaving. Ours noise is the shade ends vibrating on the aluminum track. The rear doors are the worst ones.

The foam is a better solution than our “paper towel” fix. Wish there were an Airstream fix. Thanks for your post.
