Day/Night Accordian Shades Not Folding Correctly

I have the two part day/night shades with the lower accordian translucent shade and the upper opaque shade. When I raise the opaque upper night shade many times they won't fold onto the creases. I have to pell on the ends to pop out the creases. Is there a way to fix this. No issues with the lower translucent dat shades folding.

Thanks

Kelvin

I read on some site that sells these pleated shades to leave them in the up position when in storage. I think they stretch out over time if left down. When I do store them in the up postion they seem to extend and retract normally for a while.

One of my pleated shades on my living are skylight is sagging and not due to the tension of the strings. The shades are proved by United Shades. I'll probably have to get a replacement shade for the skylight. It appears some moisture or condensation dripped on the paper pleat and there are some wrinkled spots. Don't believed the skylight is leaking. The front skylight is fine.

My day night shades do the same thing when I push them up. I thought they were supposed to be down when storing the trailer. I will try leaving them up.
