double window blinds fall down while driving

Their dual blinds with a guide string on each end, is there a way to tighten them up, the rear window blind works it's way down over bumps till you can't see out the rear window. 1999 Jayco eagle 283G on a E450.

Tighten the strings. Usually a loop on the bottom attached to the wall, just wrap the guide string around that once or twice.

Sometimes just a 1/4 turn and retighten will make a big difference. Don't get it to tight or it makes it to difficult for hand use and causes excessive wear on the strings.

Loosen the screw at the bottom of the string. Twist the little knob there till the string is tight then re-tighten the string.. do both sides..

I had a problem with the little plastic anchor these strings were attached to breaking. Here is a site where these anchors and other shade parts are available. They also have videos of how to restring blinds when the time comes as well as parts needed. If you don't know for sure which string you have they will send 3 free samples for you to do a look see. I have ordered from them and their service was excellent.
