Interior Shade Storage?

Hi All-- I am new to pop-up campers and this forum! We just purchased a 2012 Jayco Jay Series Sport 12. I love how the main/largest interior shade unzips to make almost a complete screen wall, however, I am not sure what to do with the shade after it is unzipped. It is so large and it does not stay rolled up very well. In fact, I find that it flops down and almost completely covers the small kitchenette table.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I am not sure how to keep the shade rolled or stored when it is unzipped. Any suggestions?

We just leave our slanging loose (we don't roll up)

affix 2 or 3 thin cords from ceiling to bottom sill. Make them of a length that becomes taught or relatively so when roof is raised. They will serve as keepers to hold the shade from flopping down. Or substitute thin elastic cord. Newer Jaycos (mine's a 2010) come with those.

Tuck it behind the table, or put something on the table to tuck it behind... fancy rock, water jug, vase of flowers..

We just let it hang down. We have those thin cords as well. Be careful because they break easily. I found this out the hard way when raising the roof only part way in the garage to open up the beds and load the trailer. When you put the bed in be extra careful or the slide rail will catch and tear them. I've had this happen several times before figuring out what caused it.
