Day and Night shades ?

Search JR Products part # 20-1967. Several on line retailers should come up. Just put new ones on mine this past year.

When driving in hot weather the shades are down, otherwise up! Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

The bobbins is a terrific idea. Places like Hobby Lobby sell packages of plastic bobbins that go in new sewing machines.

I found a "kit" at Camping World that is outrageously expensive but it gave me an idea of what I'd need. Pleated Shade First Aid Kit, Beige - United Shade 650004 - Drapery & Curtains - Camping World

TheRVGeeks suggested this cord. Some have said it is thick but no comments too thick. http://www.thervgeeks.com/our-favori...rd-1_4mmx100yd. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...MDQYE0QB&psc=1

Not sure what the little circular pieces are in the "kit" or a source of the springs if it turns out I need those once I get started.

Passenger side always up, as driver may need to see out.
The rest is up to the passengers and can vary.
Actually, I've found these strings to last a long time, with ours being 10yrs old now. I've also restrung a few in our old coach and not really that big a deal.
We've changed over to Translucent Cell Cordless Shades in our home, which we really like and think they would work well in a Motor Coach, as well, but not looking to spend, where we don't have to.
