That is frustrating when you have a large post, then it does not post.... I totally understand... You may try what I'd do for longer posts, write it up using Word or Pages, then once you have it the way you want it, simply copy and paste into a post.

Thor Challenger Owners Unite group at RVillage just reached 16 owners. Looks like we will be able to actually meet other Challenger owners in person. We are just missing sbleiweiss by a few weeks in AZ.

Looks great! Glad it worked out for you. We'll be "road testing" ours this weekend.

Side Pilot and Co pilot window night shades.
 
I have the accordion style side shades in my 2015 Challenger 37KT. Has anyone changed those out and what did they use I am looking at shades like the front windshield and run the wiring to the same switch. If there is any other posts on this thread about this please let me know.

Thanks,
Rsapp

Our early 2015 has brackets on the bunk that hold ends of cables. There is not enough space for the shade rollers. Next time you lower the bunk measure available space. Can't use same switch as one shade would reach bottom before the other

Too bad Chuck. You'll hate the weather here. Blue skies and sunny, hot during the day and (at least if you are coming to the mountains like we camp in) cool every night. No humidity. Hard to take.

RVillage said there were two other members in our campground or one mile away. I messaged both but never heard back from either. Strange.

Enjoy your trip.

We don't have the bunk and there would be plenty of room. All we have done is disconnect the shade at the back end and add velcro so that we can slide them forward or back. that way we can open the windows and let air in without the shades being in the way.

We did the same thing with our 2013 KT. By the way, when driving, I often put a clothes pin about half way down the track so if I un-velcro the pleated shade while driving, it slides forward just far enough to shield me from the sun coming in on the side of the camper. It does a great job when driving North in the afternoon (or South in the morning)! The same trick works on the passenger side.

We replaced ours with day/night roller blinds. I can't remember if there was a valance for each window or some sort of decorative cover for the blinds themselves, but whatever it was had to be removed (sorry, it's been a while). But they fit perfectly and don't interfere with the drop-down bunk.
