RV Blinds

I have a Coachmen 319 DSF. Some of the window blinds won't stay up, How do you tighten them to stay up?

If you're dealing with , the day/night shades that side on 2 or 4 strings.
Then tightening the strings by rotating the plastic mount at the end of the stings on the wall.
Loosen the screw, and rotate the plastic piece 1/4 turn , then tighten the screw.
Note that over tightening , shortens the string life , and if the shades have loosened with use, the stings could be worn, and the shades may need to be re-strung. Kits are available to do this , and come with instructions.

Please note that the Day/Night shades with the strings are a pain in the head?

Had to be nice!

I took the simple route and scrapped all of mine and just got new ones at Home Depot. I couldn't deal with all the problems anymore. And they look and work way better.
