We've restrung several and 2 others need now. Those 2 will be done when the weather here in AZ cools a bit.

There a several YouTube vids on how to do it. Take a look at them. The hardest part for us was removing the blinds from the trailer.

I've restrung a few on our previous 4 campers, pretty easy. Like oldmanAZ mentioned, plenty of U Tube videos and they do help.
