On most rigs it's really pretty simple. There is usually "L" brackets holding the valance in place around the window. It usually requires just a long screwdriver and some time. Or the way I prefer, a cordless drill with a bit extender and a phillips bit. Should have them all out in minutes.

I did. It's pretty simple. Unscrew each side valance first. They should just slip down. Then you will see how to unscrew the top piece. If you have any other questions, just holler.

Kix,

This is not a big deal. We have an 02 journey DL and I just remodeled the entire interior. Windows that have no cabinet above them will have a large L-Bracket located at the top center of the Valance(also called Lambriquin)holding it to the wall. To get to this you must first remove the Day/Night shade. Pull the shade all the way down then look up under the valance to the Day/ Night frame. You will see a screw at each end of the frame (if long shade there might be one in the middle or a small black clip). All screws are phillips head. Remove the screws,this will take a long reach screw driver bit for your drill or long screw driver for best and easiest results. If you have a clip in the middle just use a screw driver to wedge inbetween the frame and clip and the shade will fall into your hands.

If the valance is under your cabinets there is no L-Bracket. They screwd directly into the bottom frame of the cabinet.

We got rid of the Day/Night shades in the entire coach and I installed cordless Double diamond Opaque shades by Bali. Went to Lowe's (they were the cheapest in price)did a custom order and got them within 2wks. The cost savings for all my windows was 50% of the price I could find D/N from Winnebago. Had the entire installation done in 4hrs.

I hope this helps.

Thanks to all of you for the info. I think I can get it done now. The part that had me a little confused is that in our coach the inside of the vertical "leg" of the valance has a hidden tacked on piece of material that hides the L bracket screws. When I found this it all comes together now. Thanks again.
