We own a Jayco Bungalow and a 33RLDS, both have those shades. On the Bungalow we have replaced almost all the shades with solar screens and non see thru shades. We are going to replace the ones in the 33RLDS . Just had one of the pleated shades fixed today and was told that a lot of them came from China and there is a piece of plastic in the bottom that rubs on the string and will break it. That's why we are replacing them.
