I have a l in blind over the kitchen sink, I hate it, there is nothing to hold it in place while driving, I pull it up, The one side is bent now, I leave it up while camping so it doesn't get wet from the water from the sink.
Speaking of kitchen sinks, how easy it to replace the taps? The plastic is coming off, insurance will not cover it, until it leaks

It's usually pretty easy. The hardest part is reaching the bottom of it under the counter.

Replacing blinds on 22FB

Added to this older thread (rather than start a new one), as this Newbie needs advice on how to remove the hard fabric covered valances on our 2010 22FB - so we can access the blind mountings, install new blinds and remount the valances. It looks like there isn't much room to work up in the top underside of the valances. Assume many Jayco owners have done this work, so I'd like to avoid the learning curve. Thanks.

On our trailer there are 4 L-shaped brackets that hold the valance on, or they are screwed to the cabinet with 2 screws and then 2 L-brackets.

Thanks. I can feel small brackets, with I assume, square drive headed screws. There is very limited space for a screwdriver - a very short 'stubby', perhaps 2.5-3" at most. Anyone used another method or tool for this work. It also appears the blind top 'box' may have opening end faces to remove them from the valence removal work area. Am I getting any closer here...?

sounds good. Yep very small space. You can get them off, may take a little time but you can do it. Try this websight for shades----IRVINESHADEANDDOOR.COM 574-522-1446

Thanks, Parcany. I'll look closer at the valances and blinds, and maybe try working on one tomorrow. Will need to get the stubby square head driver 1st. Really appreciate the lead on blinds, as that was going to be my next question.

Gypsea,

When I removed mine 1-1/2 years ago to have them restrung under warranty, I used a long, magnetic bit holder in my power screwdriver. It made getting into that tight space a lot easier, and the magnet held the screw on the square tip, so I didn't loose any.

When I replaced one of ours, I was able to remove the screws holding the valance to the "L" brackets, and left the brackets on the wall. That made re-installing easier, just set the valance and shade on the brackets and reattach.
