MCD's are awfully nice. Very classy looking and easy to use. Little higher on the food chain though if you catch my drift.

I had a dealer "repair" one of my day/night shades and demanded my money back. I then had a home shades/blind place restring it and they did a great job for $35 ...it was a smaller one. Then when I had three coming apart at once we replaced ours with MCD manual-pull models. I did the installation myself ...anything to save a buck, and not difficult once you figure out how to get the window boxes/whatever off (called Lambriquins I believe).

We replaced our day nights with Levolor pleated shades from Lowes. These are cut to fit and available in either room darkening (which we got) or light filtering. They look like a very nice day/night shade, but work very easily and no cords are exposed (see Blinds pictures for some pictures.

I really like how they work -- simply pull the bottom of the shade down to lower and press the button to raise. A couple of other big pluses are their excellent insulation, ease of installation and low cost ($45 for a typical shade). We have replaced all the old day/nights with these and are very pleased with them.

Very nice work, looks factory installed, and I might say a much better quality product. Keep up the good work. Happy Trails, Travel safe..........

Rick, thank you for sharing this information. I had wondered about using these from Lowes but was 'chicken'. Now I know which blinds will be used as replacements! (I may need to ask more questions when I get to installing them!)
Since you selected the room darkening ones, would you still recommend them in all windows of an RV? Do they make the 'living area' too dark when partially down in the day time? Thanks for any recommendations!

Hi garyliso,
It is MCD for me. Go to American Duo Day/Night Shade System and read about them.
