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.

Restringing when one breaks is not terribly difficult, if you either draw a diagram of what your doing before you take it apart or take a good photo. I redid 5 or 6 of mine over the years. Traveling up or down I don't think makes any difference in the blind tension on the strings, but could be wrong? If you feel better, leave them up. Planning ahead and finding a source for strings before yours break is a pretty smart move. Put a package of string in a drawer so when you need it you have it.
