Curtain guide tie downs breaking

Our curtains have white string guides which seem to be mounted inside a track along the edge of the camper. My son was adjusting the curtain and the bottom part of the string pulled out of the side.

I didn't have time to see how much of a fix it is to put them back the way they were but 3 or 4 of them have popped out so doesn't seem like a very good design anyway.

Just wondering if others have had similar problems and how they solved them. I was thinking of screwing some U-shaped brackets to the top of the counter or into the side rail there but need to check if the beds will clear them when closed.

Cheers!

We have a similar problem with a few of our shade guides. They work well - when they work!! I haven't figured out a solution yet. If you do, please post pictures!

You could abandon them (the guide strings) completely. Our 1007 had Velcro ties on all of the strings so you could remove them, pull the flat stock out of the bottom pocket on the curtains and use the curtains more like standard curtains (open to the side instead of rolling up). They even had built in tie backs for doing this, and the mounting clips should slide in the plastic molding on the ceiling.
We still do this for the bed privacy curtains in our 19H.

Thanks for the tip about sliding the curtains. Just got back from an emergency trip to Portland so haven't gotten a chance to work on this. Need to open it up this week and then next week to pack for the Acadia trip so will check it out.

Ironic thing is after our first trip last fall we noticed we were missing most of the battens and had the dealer supply them and now we might not need them
