Day and night blinds removal

Does the case around the day and night blinds have to be removed to remove and restring blinds. How does one get the blinds off the walls?

There might be room enough to tilt the top rail and unsnap them with the window trim in place, there are a number of different methods of hanging them. It is a DIY job! First one I had break I took it down and took it to a blinds shop to get repaired, they wouldn't touch it! I bought the proper nylon string and did it myself in 20 minutes. Lot's of resources on the interwebs:

Blind & Shade Repair | Instructional Videos | Printable Instructions | FixMyBlinds.com


To find the size of the string, rap it tightly around a pencil 10 times, measure the length of the coil and divide by 10. Nylon cord (string) is available at some larger sewing/fabric centers, etc. The 'repair kits' are over-priced. I ended up buying a spool of string (3,000 ft!!) on Ebay for $12.

What make and model MH do you have? Different MH models and makes attach blinds different kinds of ways. If you are lucky they are the clip in kind.

My blinds are screwed to the top of the valence (from the inside), and that is a long way up in there, almost impossible to get to. If they are like mine you would unscrew the curtain bracket/base from the valence then restring.

Most use a spring clip. Look carefully with a flashlight and you will see a silver metal clip holding it in place (usually one on each side.) Pop this loose with a screwdriver. A few coach manufacturers simply drove a long screw through the top of the blind. Usually two, but sometimes three on long blinds.

Motor home is an American Eagle 2004. The case or enclosure appears to be permanently attached to the wall. Blinds are inside enclosure and no apparent way to be removed. I will look closer under blinds for attachments. Anymore help more specific? Thanks

Tilt the blinds out away from the wall as far as you can get them and get yourself positioned so you are as close to the wall as you can...look up and see if you can see how they are attached. On my American Allegiance, there are two metal pieces angled at 90 degrees that hold the blinds in place. Unscrew one screw on each piece and the blinds come down.
