On my electrically driven curtain, there was once an aluminum thing that held the cable ends at the beginning of the curtain tight (seems to be a spring in the circular cable somewhere).

When I first bought the 2000 Beaver Patriot earlier this year the thing fell out and it took awhile before I figured out what it was. The curtain required hand assistance without it. Since then it fell out again and dissappeared.

Does anyone know the brand of these assemblies or a source for parts? Are they standard items in coaches of this price range? I have only owned RVs of lesser cost where everything is simple and hand operated.

I admit to not calling Monaco about this yet.

That should be your first step.
Have your model, year, and VIN# handy. anyone else answering will be just guessing unless they have the exact same model as yours. Manufacturers change suppliers from time to time but with the VIN# they will be able to give you the exact info you need.

As a side note you may want to get an extendable magnet rod pick up tool and check down inside your front window defrosters. You may find the part that you lost.........

It was a bit too large to go into the little slots of the vents but I would like to have a magnet that works on aluminum. Where do you get those?

Use the standard ones, just stick a wad of gum on the end of it!
