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.

One of the main reasons the strings fray and break is the sharp edges where they pass through the metal parts. Make sure the grommets are in place. If you want to save some time in restringing them, line up a divorce attorney first. We got a guy to redo ours for $70 each including all supplies. I believe many RV makers are getting away from the day night shades.

Oh Lindsay, I have wondered about this!!! laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif
Have a couple "droopy" shades now, after 7 years of full timing. The small one, in the bedroom, I may attempt. But the multi-stringed marvel at the dinette is worth paying someone, IMHO.
The "cat's cradle" string system is one thing. I am more concerned with all the window surrounds!
