We had the same problem with out 2003 Itasca, we have the daylight shades and went to the web sight on how to fix shades in RV. IT gave instructions on how to repair them. Depending on the type of shade you have you may need to search further.

Try fix my blinds.com and you will see a video. We have done this with great success, the hard part is taking the shade down.

To take the shade down pull both the shades down in the closed position. Look up at the top and there is a screw about 6" in from each end. Remove each screw and then grab the top of the blind at the center and twist as you apply downward pressure. There is a clip up there that holds the top of the blind in place.

I didn't have a clue and found The Dirty Blind Man. The materials are high quality and the CD is a must have. With the help of DBM I was able to restring two 4 string 57 x 32 shades in no time. I sitll have one more to go, that's for another rainy day and right now we are enjoying the sunshine way too much.

I own a 2012 holiday rambler 32' and notice the water stains by the driver and passenger windows is there any kind of guttering I could install to stop this water getting on the sides? Thanks SeaGrouch
