Coach & Powertrain: Day-Night Shade Problem
June 12, 2012
Filed under RV Tech Q&A
We have a 2000 Fleetwood Southwind motorhome with a shade problem in the day part. The twine that runs through this section has “gathered” to the point of tearing into the fabric around the holes the string passes through. Of the seven windows in our coach, four have developed this problem. Short of buying all new day-night shades for all the windows for the pattern to match, is there any way for this problem to be fixed by the owner or is it a repair shop problem?
