We have 2005 Voyage. We want to clean the drapes around the windshield and want to know how to take them down. They snap on. Also can they be washed? Bob

Hi Bob,

I called Winnebago about our blinds and they said they had to be dry cleaned. When I found out the price, I moved onto plan B. To get the blinds off, I had to drill out two rivets that secured a small plate that prevents the blinds from sliding off the track. There is a small plate on each side (above the side windows that are adjacent to the front seats). Once removed, I hand washed the blinds in the kitchen sink with dish detergant. Much to my surprise, they cleaned up perfectly and are even softer than when they were new. I re-installed them when they were slightly damp. I put the little plates back in with sheet metal screws (to replace the rivets) That way, when I need to clean them again, I'll simply take out the screws. I know this approach bucks conventional wisdom but it works great and it's free. Hope this helps.

Jack
