Pulled on one side of day/nite shades..

I pulled on one side of my daynight shades, and it fell down loose..Is it just rewind the bottom bobbin, seems like a lot of string compared to the others that work, is it a quick fix?

String may be broken. They are not hard to work on, just takes patience. The string can be hard to find, wrap it 10X around a pencil and measure the length of the coil then divide by 10 to find thickness. I bought nylon string at a blind shop, paid $15 for one shade's worth. Another shade broke and I got 3,000 yards of same string on eBay for less than $20! Some people use heavy duty fishing line.

Someday I guess I'll have to do one, but after 11 years with this rig we have yet to break one. In fact, in all my years of RV'ing I've never had one break.
Now that I've "said" that I better order a kit or two!

The end where it is anchored to the wall hasn't just come off the peg has it. Happened to me when the copilot moved the blind very quickly and I was MOST upset at the thought of having to restring it but calmed down considerably when I realised what had happened.
