Windshield Curtain Rod Model

We have a 2005 Alpine 36 FDDS. The windshield curtains are not traveling quite far enough to meet in the middle. It looks like it's not strung correctly. I can't find a brand or model number. Does anyone have them?
I would much rather use a diagram to restring it.

The line runs from the master carrier to a pulley at the retracted end of the track, down to the pulley mounted to the wall at the bottom of the curtain, back up to another pulley at the retracted end and finally back to the master carrier. There is a gap between the two tracks of about 3" at the center of the windshield, so it doesn't completely close or overlap. We have to pull it together a bit to attach the top Velcro tab.



Check to see if the hooks are all on the correct carriers or that one of the screws securing the track to the ceiling hasn't backed out and created an obstruction.

Yeah. That 3 inch the gap I want to fix. Maybe they are made that way.

You could make an extension for the master carrier out of aluminum flat stock about 4-5" long. Drill two holes and use small machine screws to attach it to the carrier and drill two additional holes to reposition the last two hooks. The curtain would not retract as far on the sides but it would come together in the middle.
