I believe yours have eyes in the foldong curtain to which the roller assemblies are attached with a flat hook that is squeezed closed. If so just pry each open and slip the the eye off. I can't remember if you have the room to remove the stopper at the end and thread it all off rollers and all.
I would think a dry cleaner could do them.

Lug Nut,
Are you suggesting the curtains can be dry-cleaned? I've often wondered about that. Has anyone here every had that done?

Thanks

The curtains in question are on a friends DSDP and Newmar gave him new ones and he doesn't like them. What he wants to do is put his original ones back on.

The curtain hangs on a plastic piece that snaps in and slides in the track. He wants to remove the curtain that is in there now. I've had a couple of mine come out and they are quite easy to snap back in, but getting them out looks a little more complicated.

You can remove the white plastic slides with the metal hook, etc. as follows: Remove 2-3 mounting screws starting at the end of the track. Remove the small phillps head screw in the white end bracket on the track. Pull off the white end bracket and you can remove the entire shade or any amount of slides desired.
