I met a guy who was restringing his shades in his rv. He told me in no uncertain terms to have them all the way up when traveling to put less pressure on the strings. I do not know if this is true. Anyone know if it's better one way or the other? I sure would not like to restring a shade after seeing him try to do it without a lot of swearing, lol.

I have restrung all the day night shades in here and it is no big deal for me BUT I was also a mechanic for 30 years. Here's a link to parts like string and so on.

Mine have plastic tabs at the bottom that keep them from moving around. I put the shades in those while travelling to keep it cooler.
