Window Shade

The window pull down shade cord had broken. I have a CC 2003 Allure. Any way to repair or restring the shade? Is this a major job or should I just install a new one?

Yes you can repair them. Pick up a restring kit at an rv supply store (camping world).
Use this string to tie up who ever is talking you into restring these things and leave them by the side of the road. Drive off and get someone else to do it.
Failing that, there are directions in the package, here's a you tube vid. , I'm sure that there are others. (google how to restring rv shades) When you start taking it apart take lots of pictures and note how things were put together. One of the hard parts is getting the shades back in after you've restrung them. I would suggest that you remove the whole frame from the window then snap them back in to place and then reattach the frame to the window. (I've had to take all our window shades and frames out and put them back in several times) It will save you a lot of frustrations and use of golf words.
The long and the short of it is that the job is a pain in the butt but not all that difficult. You probably will screw up the first time but I bet you'll figure it out. Good Luck

pumper 9X9: thanks for that video. Doesn't look that difficult and I may be faced with this in the future.

Pumper thanks for the information. I ordered the restring kit from Camping World, but it may take 2-8 weeks. It will be a good project this winter in Fla.
