broken mini-blind

One of the strings in the day-night mini-blind in the bathroom of our '04 FR Wildcat broke, making the blind inoperable. I can't figure out any way of repairing it. Can anyone recommend an inexpensive source for a replacement blind?

Depending on the measurements, I might try Home Depot or Lowe's first. I would at least go there to see if I could get that size. Then I would start looking into other sources such as stores that specialize in blinds. Before you go that route check some RV sites in order to compare prices.

I'm sure someone will come along with some web sites to check out.

Both of these sites show in detail how to DIY. I bought the correct size string locally from a window shade company, $3 for enough to re-string 2 windows.. It took me about 45 min to re-string the first day/night shade, subsequent shades went much faster.
FWIW, some folks have used braided fishing line for longer life.

I had one shade re-strung this past winter in Quartzsite AZ, cost 40.00, the man came to the trailer. I probably could have done the research and did it myself, but lazy me-glad to pay him and he did a good job in about 15 minutes..Quite a few people do restringing in the Q area during winter..Dona
