I just want thank every one who responded to my problem. I am keeping them all until my shoulder will allow me to check into this repair thing more. I have 5 thumbs on each hand when it comes to dexterity. I also hate to throw new blinds away on a coach with less than 5000 miles on it.

I don't have much patience either, but I had no choice. When the string broke on one of my blinds, I tackled the project myself. I got some 130# dacron fishing line and repaired one of mine and one on my friend's motorhome. This cord should last the life of the motorhome.

I had a small width bedroom shade repaired. I took the shade off and found a local home blind place in Montgomery AL that repaired it for me in 2005 ...I would think most home blind places could do the job ...parts and labor cost for mine was just over $27.

When I found three about to come apart in 2008 we replaced them all with MCD shades, which we like a whole lot better.

I just restrung 2 last month. The key is to remove the valance with the shade still attacthed. The stringing isn't as bad as it looks. Then when you put it back on the valance you can adjust the tension while it sits on the table.

Wasn't possible on mine ...had to remove the shade first in order to get to the screws holding the valence up.

No possible on mine as the "spools" the strings were anchored to were attached to the wall below the valence on all but one shade ...and the side pieces were separate from the top on that one!!
