We recently purchased a 2002 Chinook Concourse and experienced the window shades on the driver side (above the sofa-bed) will not stay up anymore. They were working fine, but last week-end when I raised them, they slowly slid down. Is there a trick, or do they need to be replaced? Or, I see that they can be re-strung....not too sure if we have the patience to do that! Just curious...

If the blinds are not staying in place, it usually means that you need more tension on the strings. There should be a bobbin on the wall where the strings mount, and you can take a wrap or two around the bobbin to increase tension until the blinds stays in place.

For those that don't want to restring themselves, I used Pat Miller in past and she did great job. 503-390-8681 "RV Shade Repair".
